The FLA is delighted to announce it's new agreement with Stare Decisis!

 

The Family Lawyers' Association of Ireland is delighted to inform its members of the conclusion of a new agreement with Stare Decisis.

From January 2020 (and, indeed, backdated to 2018) the members' section of the FLA website will republish a substantial number of reports prepared by Decisis on family law and related issues.

Furthermore, Decisis have agreed to provide a reduced price for barrister members of the FLA of €195 plus VAT per year (reduced from €250 plus VAT per year, which is the normal price for individual subscriptions). Reductions at a similar rate will also be given to solicitor members of the Association who take out new subscriptions, on application to Decisis.

The FLA strongly encourages its members to avail of this offer.
