Family and Youth Law Center Continuing Education Program
The Family and Youth Law Center at Capital University Law School announced its new Continuing Education Program. The yearlong program offers webinars on a range of topics, including adoption, child welfare, and juvenile justice. Professionals and practitioners—specifically attorneys, social workers, and counselors—may receive continuing education credit through the program. Webinars featured in the program's spring session included:
- I Want to Be an Adoption Attorney! Nuts and Bolts of Adoption Law and Process—Starting Your Practice: Learn the basics of adoption law and practice (public, private, and intercountry), including tips for avoiding and managing contested adoptions and guidance for starting your practice.
- Serving Youth With Cross-Systems Involvement: Youth who have been involved with one or more child-serving systems represent one of our most vulnerable populations. High percentages of such youth have disabilities, mental health issues, and/or drug and alcohol involvement. In addition, youth of color are overrepresented in these systems. This session will explore how we can assure fairness in serving these youth in relation to issues of race, ethnicity, foreign origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, and other relevant factors.
Pricing for each webinar is available on the webinar registration page. For more information on the program and webinar topics, please visit http://familyyouthlaw.org/continuing-education-series.php.
