    During this 3-hour CLE session, moderator Gregory Ulrich from Ulrich Law PLC, will facilitate elite speakers for these topics:

    • Good to Go: Interstate and International Child Custody Impacting Military Families

    This 2-hour presentation, by Patricia Apy of Paras, Apy, & Reiss, PC, reviews interstate jurisdictional issues, military custody statutes, along with avoiding pitfalls in addressing child custody disputes. This also addresses international child custody issues and enforcement, with attention to the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of Child Abduction, and preventative measures to avoid wrongful removals and retentions.

    • The Feres Doctrine: Restrictions for Servicemember Lawsuits

    From this 1-hour presentation, Dr. Dwight Stirling, from the Center for Law and Military Policy, explains how—under the Feres doctrine, a policy stemming from the Supreme Court case of Feres v. United States in 1950—servicemembers are categorically banned from filing suits for harm incurred while on duty. The denial of judicial review extends to non-combat-related injuries such as sexual assault and medical malpractice. Since its inception, courts and commentators have vehemently condemned the doctrine, arguing that it is unjust to close the courthouse door to the men and women who preserve our freedom. Still, the policy remains controlling Supreme Court precedent. This session explores the origin of the doctrine, its expansion over the years, and the withering criticism.
