Annual Divorce Camp Conference

2019 Divorce Camp Conference

September 12-15, 2019

Breezy Point Resort
Breezy Point, MN

Since 1994, the Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers has offered family law attorneys and allied professionals the opportunity to combine high quality and innovative continuing legal education with a long weekend in the famous Minnesota North Woods during prime fall colors.

The event draws attorneys whose practices range from traditional litigation to those limiting their practices to collaborative law, as well as CPAs, financial planners, psychologists, judges and other allied professionals.

Typically, the Chapter plans an interactive format, which varies in its specifics from year to year and has included: breakout sessions, simulations, small groups with facilitators, group participation “fish bowls,” and the like.

The daily schedule allows for casual networking plus free time to enjoy the recreational facilities at the resort, pristine golf courses, hiking and biking trails, and planned activities.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love Money

All of us who work with divorcing families know that money is more than just math. Our clients come to us with their unique financial histories, habits, sensitivities, and sense of what is fair. At the same time, we confront our own habits and beliefs in how we manage our clients and our professional practices. When we are aware of our own financial biases and lenses, we can better serve our clients with compassion.

The field of behavioral finance focuses on these psychological and behavioral aspects of money. At Camp, we will delve into this topic in a three-part money workshop with our guest speaker, Ruth Hayden.* We will explore money beliefs and values, how they develop, and how  they affect behavior. Then we will apply this understanding to ourselves and our clients and will consider how we and our clients can transcend our financial lenses. The weekend will culminate with a practical skill-building exercise that applies our knowledge of behavioral finance to a complex financial dispute.
