Seminar to Train Nevada Attorneys to Represent Children in Foster Care
On Wednesday, February 24, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada will host a seminar for Nevada attorneys in their classroom at 725 East Charleston Boulevard in downtown Las Vegas. All attorney members of the Clark County Bar Association are invited to attend. This is a great opportunity for attorneys to give back to their community and support the good works provided by the Children’s Attorneys Project (CAP).
SPECIAL OFFER: Anyone who takes a CAP case during the month of February will be entered into a raffle for cocktails with Mayor Carolyn and Oscar Goodman.
The seminar ” Basics of Representing Children in Abuse & Neglect Cases” will feature Eighth Judicial District Court Judge Judge Frank P. Sullivan and Nevada attorneys Candace Barr and Janice Wolf from the Legal Aid Center.
This seminar is for attorneys who would like to represent children in foster care. They will learn the role of a children’s attorney and receive an overview of the court proceedings and processes involved in dependency cases.
Attorneys will obtain guidance on building an effective client relationship; learn about permanency planning; be able to counsel older clients on options available for “aging out” of foster care; and so much more.
