In October 2015, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) hosts its 16th Annual Networking and Educational Forum in Washington, D.C., celebrating 25 years of collaborative law since this practice was used the first time by Stuart Webb from Minnesota. Presenters and collaborative practitioners from the US and from all over the world will convene to share their latest thoughts and experiences with collaborative practice in family disputes. A similar event takes place already in April 2015 in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia: The 5th Annual IACP Institute offers various workshops and presentations for lawyers and other professionals who would like to become familiar with method and applications of collaborative law.
