Karen Levitt Co-Authors Award Winning Book “Collaborative Law: Practice and Procedure”

by | Sep 16, 2014 | Collaborative Law, News

Last year, Karen was invited to participate in a multi-authored handbook on Collaborative Law published by Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (“MCLE”), the leading continuing legal education provider in Massachusetts.

The Levitt Law Group is pleased to announce that in July of this year, MCLE was honored by the International Association for Continuing Legal Education (“ACLEA”), with the award for Outstanding Achievement in the “Publications” category, for its publication of “Collaborative Law:  Practices and Procedures” which Karen co-authored with a chapter regarding prebriefs and debriefs in the Collaborative Law process.

Published in January of 2014, the handbook addresses the burgeoning field of Collaborative Law from both multistate and multidisciplinary perspectives.  It encompassed chapters written not just by Karen and other Massachusetts professionals, but by practitioners from other northern New England states.  The book is a “how to” for conflict resolution using Collaborative Law’s team based approach which is unique in its use of interdisciplinary professionals to resolve family law disputes out of court, including attorneys, mental health professionals, coach/facilitators, financial specialists, and mediators.

Congratulations Karen for being part of this important award winning book!
