Representing Youth in Foster Care – On-demand training

This training program prepares attorneys to represent youth in foster care. As a lawyer for a child in foster care, you will represent your client in juvenile court, identify and obtain appropriate services, and negotiate settlements. When you decide to do pro bono work for CLC, CLC staff attorneys and social workers will strategize with you, provide information about resources for your client, and help you assess your client’s development and education needs.  This program also provides updated training for current volunteer attorneys, judges, county attorneys, public defenders, social workers & other child advocates.
