Thank You Judge Layne Smith

Judge L. SmithLast night, over 35 Guardian ad Litem volunteers and staff (almost standing room only) attended a continuing education session with Judge Layne Smith, our guest presenter.  Judge Smith shared information about the court testimony process and criteria.  Staff and volunteers were informed about what to expect in court as a witness, how to prepare for court testimony and understand from a judge’s perspective how witnesses are evaluated.  Many volunteers had positive feedback about the training and suggested we have a follow up training!
