The American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law will be hosting back-to-back conferences in Washington, DC in July 2015. They have issued a call for workshop proposals for both conferences, with a submission deadline of January 12, 2015.
The 4th National Parent Attorney Conference focuses on attorneys how to represent parents in abuse and neglect cases. The conference will be held July 21-23, 2015, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. This blogger attended the conference in 2013 and a wealth of information was presented that was then passed along to defense attorneys here in Indiana through the Indiana Public Defender Council. The information about the request for proposals for that conference is available here.
The 16th ABA Conference on Children and the Law focuses more on the children in juvenile courts, whether in abuse and neglect cases or in juvenile delinquency cases. That conference will be held July 24-25, 2015, at the same hotel. The request for information for the Conference on Children and the Law is available here.
