Being Part of a Collaborative Community Counts

You can’t practice Collaborative Divorce alone. By definition, Collaborative Practice requires you to work with other professionals. The Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois (CLII) allows you to meet and form relationships with other Collaborative Professionals.

As a CLII member, you will have many opportunities to learn, grow, and build your Collaborative Practice with other like-minded professionals.

CLII provides:

Networking Opportunities – CLII sponsors monthly practice group meetings in various locations in Cook, Lake and Dupage County. Collaborative Divorce Professionals have the opportunity to network together and form relationships that can increase business opportunities for all.

Support  Opportunities – Collaborative Practice is a unique divorce process with its own challenges.  As a member of CLII, you will have the opportunity to meet other professionals who understand your challenges and can share practical solutions.

Educational Opportunities – Collaborative Practice is both a discipline and a skill. CLII provides its members with a host of educational opportunities to expand their knowledge of Collaborative Law. It also provides workshops and seminars where Collaborative Law Practitioners can practice their collaborative skills through ongoing training

The Benefits of Being a CLII Member

As a CLII Member, you will be part of a growing community of Illinois Collaborative Divorce Professionals.  You will have access to CLII’s educational, networking, and skill-building events at a reduced rate.
