Welcome to the WCFLCR 2017 Congress in Dublin

It is an enormous pleasure to welcome you to the website of the World Congress on Family Law and Children’s Rights to be held in Dublin, Ireland in 2017. The area of family law and children’s rights remain exciting, challenging and fast moving areas of legal scholarship and practice and the Congress has established itself as the leading international forum for discussion and deliberation on these issues. International co-operation and communication enable us to advance our shared understanding of the many complex issues involved here and we look forward to Dublin in 2017 providing an unrivalled environment for the Congress to advance these goals.

The Congress Social Programme

Dublin is a vibrant and exciting city and June is the perfect month to visit. The Congress coincides with a bank holiday weekend and so there will be lots on in the City. We have created a social programme specifically for our delegates to give you the chance to relax and enjoy Dublin in addition to the more serious Congress programme sessions. To find out more of what’s in store visit the social programme page of our website.
