ONLINE MEDIATION & ARBITRATION TRAINING
Houston's Manouse Mediation & Arbitration Training is now offering their courses online. They offer 5 courses for Texas child welfare and family law professionals, all of which I've taken and highly recommend:

It also includes a Sponsors & Partners section with additional, helpful information from the vendors who help make all three of our statewide, large-scale, CLE events all FREE. It features an interactive (clickable) table of contents and is the perfect compliment to the State Bar of Texas' Essential Lawyer's Tool Kit (which we highly recommend).
