AAML Fellows Receive Three Days of Educational & Professional Development in Family Law
Paul Tusch attended the annual meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers in Chicago in November 2019. The annual meeting includes three days of educational and professional development programs for Academy Fellows. This year’s programs included a day on the impact of international laws on family practices, and a day addressing mental health and addiction issues and their impact on custody. The third day addressed financial issues such as business valuation and taxes.
The Academy was founded in 1962 with the goal of promoting “the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in the practice of family law.” There are less than 1700 Academy Fellows in the United States. Paul is a Fellow of the Academy and serves on the Board of Managers of its Connecticut chapter. He also serves on the Professionalism Committee and the Collaborative Law Committee of the national organization.
