Welcome to CJER's online course on Characterizing Property in family court. This is the fifth in a series of online courses on family law topics. Because it is always available online, it is especially useful to judicial officers who have been recently assigned to family court. It provides more experienced judges with a convenient reference for related statutes, rules, and forms.
As with CJER publications, this online course is a group effort. The list of credits below is eloquent testimony to the numbers of people and many hours that went into its preparation.
But development of an online course does not end here. Feedback from
those who take the course is critical to its evolution and the design
of future courses. We expect to offer more online judicial education courses in the areas of criminal and civil topics. By submitting your comments
after taking this course, you will become part of the development
team and help refine the model for future courses.
Thanks in advance for taking time to contribute to the development of CJER's judicial education online course library.
Many thanks to the following judicial officers who gave generously of their time and whose thoughtful comments contributed significantly to the development of this course.
Hon. David L. Belz, Superior Court of Los Angeles County
Diane E. Cowdrey, Ed.D., Director
Ralph McMullan, CJER Web Producer
