Potential Asia Pacific International Family Law Chapter
As an International family law expert and a long standing Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), Damien Greer was invited to participate in the working group that met with The Academy Executive in Hong Kong last week. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the establishment of a new Asia Pacific Chapter. Stakeholders from China, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia participated in this landmark event.
The International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL) is a worldwide association of practising lawyers who are recognised by their peers as the most experienced and skilled international family law specialists in their respective countries. Membership is by invitation only with Damien being one of the few members based here in Queensland. This gives Damien Greer Lawyers a distinct advantage over non-member firms with access to a network of leading international family law experts around globe and the ongoing education of members in relation to International Family Law.
In 1986, The International Academy of Family Lawyers was founded to improve family law services delivered around the world. IAFL has an existing European Chapter, an American Chapter and a Canadian Chapter.
Recognising the future growth and importance of the Asia Pacific sphere the Academy is now considering the establishment of a Chapter for the Asia/Pacific region.
Acknowledging the vast geography, cultural and legal diversity of the Asia Pacific sphere this new Chapter will promote all aspects of International Family Law and assist in the education of Fellows in the region and internationally to better serve their clients and Courts.
Damien has been actively involved in the IAFL for several years, having both attended and presented at International and American meetings and conferences. He looks forward to his ongoing contribution to the formation and growth of this exciting new Chapter and the longer term benefits for clients in the region.
