ABOUT FLiP FACULTY
FLiP Faculty is an independent company focused purely on delivering a unique range of courses to professionals in the family law sector.
The firm was established by Gillian Bishop, Felicity Shedden and Alex von der Heyde who want to offer the family law community training courses that allow practitioners to gain a greater insight into the behaviours of clients and the way that they respond to these. As they put it "making the good great!"
Gillian is a family lawyer, mediator and arbitrator and founder of the boutique family law company Family Law in Partnership (better known to many as FLiP). From the start of FLiP Gillian has had an underlying belief that the way that people going through divorces and family issues and are supported by the legal sector can be improved. (FLiP was founded on this belief and has delivered 21 years’ of support to clients, proving time and again its worth).
Felicity is a family lawyer, mediator and arbitrator as well as a deputy district judge. Having run her own firm and latterly joining FLiP as a consultant to allow her more time for her DDJ role. She has been a key driver for the introduction of Parenting Coordination into the UK.
Both Gillian and Felicity are regular speakers on FLiP Faculty Courses.
Alex is the Practice Manager for FLiP as well as a director of FLiP Faculty. Alex's focus is to ensure the smooth running of the courses and to deliver the best possible learning experience for our delegates.
Our aim is to be seen as the foremost provider of specialist training to the family law sector, allowing barristers, solicitors and legal executives to truly excel, providing the best possible service to their clients. Our speakers have extensive knowledge and experience in their fields of expertise and a passion for delivering this knowledge to you.
In addition FLiP Faculty Ltd is working to build the Parenting Coordinator role into the UK. Our Parenting Coordination pages provide more detail on this valuable service whose benefits have been well proven in, for example, Canada, certain states in the USA and South Africa.
