The Future of Children’s Lawyering: Accessibility of the Work - Part 1
Monday, September 19, 2022, 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM
The pipeline into children’s law needs to be diversified and children’s law as a field needs to be more accessible to people, including those with lived expertise. How we frame and talk about this work matters as does the language we use. Historically, organizations that employ children’s lawyers have been part of the problem, but we currently have an opportunity to be part of the solution. Join our speakers for an interactive discussion about these issues and hear ideas for solutions to make the field of children’s law more accessible.<br /> <br /><br />Speakers: <br /><br />Kirstin Evans, 2020-22 Gault Fellow, The Gault Center, Washington, DC<br /><br />Leyda Garcia-Greenawalt, National Law School Student Organizer, National Association of Counsel for Children, Chicago, IL<br /><br />Hector Linares, Coordinator of Skills & Experiential Learning and Clinic Professor, Loyola University, New Orleans, LA<br /><br />Shannon Moody, PhD, MSSW, CSW, Kentucky Youth Advocates, Louisville, KY<br /><br />Chach Duarte White, Director of Legal Services, Justice Expansion Team, Legal Counsel for Youth & Children, Seattle, WA (moderator)<br /><br />This program is presented by ABA Litigation Section and Children's Rights Litigation Committee
