My name is Jawan Finley.   I was appointed by Vice President Kevin Judd as Chair of the Family Law Section.  I invite you to join me as I revitalize this section. This year I hope to create a Family Law website that will link to the National Bar Association’s webpage.  I also hope to publish two articles, conduct two seminars and play a role in this year’s Gertrude Rush conference which is scheduled for April, 2012 in Tampa, Florida. This section will also host CLEs at this year’s convention in Las Vegas in July, 2012.

I am proud to announce that I have a full Executive Board which consists of me as Chair, Yolanda Sonnier as Vice-Chair, Leslie M. Gales as Secretary, Angela De la Cruz as Treasurer, Patrick Joseph as Editor In Chief, John Grimes as Director of Membership/Website Editor, Michelle Thomas as CLE Coordinator and Tiffany Moseley as  NBLSA Fellow.  In addition, we created a group on linked in.

If you practice in the family law area, in any aspect, I encourage you to become a member of the National Bar Association and the family law section. The average membership dues are $200.00 and you will receive a 20% discount if you are a member of one of the National Bar’s Affiliate Chapters.  Section dues are $15.  The partnerships and knowledge that we can share is priceless. We will have a teleconference call each month and plan to attend, at least, two annual NBA meetings. The next teleconference is scheduled for November 22, 2011 at 6:30pm EST.

I look forward to meeting you and I hope together we can make the Family Law Section one of the most informative and integral sections of the National Bar Association. 

Best Regards,

Jawan Finley
