Cary Mogerman Serves as Faculty Member
Again this summer, our partner Cary Mogerman served as a member of the faculty of two very important national skills courses for family law attorneys. In July, Cary served on the faculty of the eight-day American Bar Association “Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute” in Boulder, Colorado, July 7-15. The Institute is an intensive eight day trial advocacy skills instruction and training program designed especially for the field of family law, and enjoys an enrollment of experienced family law attorneys from all over the United States seeking to improve their courtroom skills. The Institute is co-presented by the American Bar Association Family Law Section, and the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (“NITA”), an organization known as the worldwide leader in trial advocacy skills training. The Institute took place at NITA’s Boulder, Colorado headquarters. This was Cary's sixth summer as an instructor on the ABA/NITA Institute faculty.
In June, he served as a member of the faculty of the annual Institute for Family Law Associates of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). The AAML Institute is an annual four-day course for associates employed by Fellows of the AAML, and is intended to help these new family law attorneys learn substantive family law as well as best practices for family law skills and practice methods. He lectured on tax issues in divorce as well as second chair responsibilities at trial, in family law cases. He has served as an instructor for the AAML Institute since 2006.
Cary enjoys these teaching opportunities and feels it is a very gratifying way to give back to the profession in which he is engaged. “I meet and teach with other divorce attorneys from all over the country in these courses, and I learn a great deal myself about other methods and approaches to what we do. The lawyers who are enrolled as students in these programs are very focused and engaged, and so it is fun to work with them because they enjoy the challenge of learning new skills and improving old ones. I hope to spend some time teaching again next summer as well.”
