Training & Advocacy Resources

child in court

America’s court system is the best in the world, but it can be intimidating and frightening for thousands of innocent children caught in the midst of legal battles over their future.

Attorneys and GAL volunteers representing the best interests of  children in court proceedings face different, and often more difficult, challenges than those representing adults.  Our goal is to assist child advocates and attorneys by providing convenient access to legal resources, training and advocacy resources.  In this section you will find a variety of resources to assist child welfare professionals.
