Date To be Announced  | New Collaborative Experience Training

Update on the New Collaborative Experience training
From: The CLI Training Committee

During the age of Covid-19 accommodations, the Training Committee decided it poses a health risk to provide in-person training, so we will not be offering the New Collaborative Experience training in November.  We came to this decision with reluctance.  We recognize that audience participation and having a chance to meet and network with Collaborative professionals at all levels of experience, has been an important part of our initial training.

We are busy now transforming our training materials into as compelling, interesting, and engaging virtual modules as possible.  We are working on the best way to present the full training without the potential exhaustion of asking participants to Zoom for full days.  Please bear with us as we continue to make the transition from live to virtual.

We anticipate that we will be able to offer the Reimagined New Collaborative Experience early in 2021 and hope you will join us.  We will keep this site updated with actual dates and times when we have them.

In the meantime, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) is offering virtual introductory training on Collaborative Practice.  This training will not be specific to Minnesota’s brand of  Collaborative team practice, but it will  provide solid grounding in the basics of Collaborative Law and teaming.  Check out the IACP website at for more information.
