40th National Child Welfare Law Conference

2017: Promoting Excellence, Building Community, Advancing Justice.

August 10–12, 2017 in New Orleans, LA

More than 40 years of experience went into this premiere three-day training, during which we gave you the most current information and progressive tools to advocate for your clients.

Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this work, we brought in professionals from the fields of medicine, mental health, social work, probation, law enforcement, education, and more, to attend our conference and serve as faculty.

We know you have dedicated at least some of your practice to the representation of children and youth, parents, or the state in juvenile dependency, delinquency, or family law cases. This conference was an opportunity to come together with your fellow advocates to network and receive the most progressive resources available.
