National Association of Counsel for Children
ATLANTA — The National Association of Counsel for Children 36th National Child Welfare, Juvenile, and Family Law Conference opens this morning with remarks from Georgia Supreme Court Presiding Justice P. Harris Hines to open three days of discussions on how best and how better to represent young people in courts.
Scheduled topics include the very lawyer-oriented, such as introducing electronic evidence in court, along with updates on hearsay and investigation techniques.
But organizers aim to present a broader picture of best practices in child welfare as well, inviting activists and public interest attorneys to talk about changes in the system and problems that still exist.
It’s the 36th annual conference for the Colorado-based NACC.
