The American Bar Association Section of Litigation Children's Rights Litigation Committee, along with co-sponsor Juvenile Law Center, will host a series of FREE non-CLE teleconference programs focused on the issue of youth transitioning from foster care to adulthood. The focus of these discussions will be convening lawyers across the country to discuss what is currently happening and what needs to happen for this population to assure a successful transition. Practical issues like transition planning and whether the role of lawyers (and the courts) should change once the youth reaches 18 will be discussed. Any questions, please contact Cathy Krebs.
Assuring a successful transition: What is the role of lawyers and the courts for transitioning youth? Tuesday, October 18, 1:00—2:30 p.m. Eastern
The second program in this series will focus on the legal representation of youth, pre and post 18. Does the role of the lawyer change? What is the role of the court and does it change once the youth turns 18? How do lawyers provide effective representation that allows youth to truly evaluate the benefits of staying in care after they turn 18? Some lawyers are continuing representation after youth leave foster care - what does this role look like? Speakers will also address the role of lawyers in transition planning.
