Each Fellow must demonstrate by personal conduct a professional and ethical commitment to his or her clients and to the betterment of society in resolving what are often intensely emotional and complex family problems. Today, the Academy is recognized as the pre-eminent family law association in America with more than 1,500 Fellows.
