Why You Should Attend

Whether representing children, parents or a child welfare or foster care agency, in private practice, government, public interest practice or as a policy advocate, the environment in which advocates operate is increasingly complex. This year, PLI’s 21st Annual Children’s Law Institute will focus on a variety of legal and social issues affecting child welfare and juvenile justice practice.

What You Will Learn

  • Legal updates in child welfare and juvenile justice law
  • The role of the social workers in family court and delinquency proceedings
  • The recent expansion of KinGAP
  • Ethical issues for children’s law practitioners
  • Unpacking power and privilege in family court practice: race, gender, sexuality, and intersectionality

Who Should Attend

This program will benefit child, parent and family advocates working in the private or public sector in New York State, in law, social work or public policy.
