Lawyers can make a critical difference in juvenile justice and child welfare cases.  This session will discuss how to ensure access to justice and zealous advocacy for each client whether you work within an organization or as a solo practitioner.  Building rapport with child and youth clients and addressing burnout will be discussed as well as concrete information about how lawyers can provide excellent representation given the demands of a busy practice.

Knowing that a child’s connection to family, community and school is critical, how can lawyers best ensure that their clients in both the child welfare and juvenile justice system remain connected?  This panel will address the important role that lawyers can play in addressing the lack of foster homes and placements; ensuring that our clients obtain an appropriate education; and keeping our clients connected to their families. 

Speakers:

4:00—5:00 p.m. One size does not fit all – getting the right services for your client

Advocating for and securing services for clients can be a challenge.  Panelists will discuss how to identify the services that will meet the needs of your client, explore the current services in Idaho, and discuss what to do when needed services do not exist.  Special attention will be paid to advocacy within rural areas, mental health needs, LGBTQ+ youth, transition-aged youth, and children who are involved in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.

Speakers:

Gabriella McDonald, Texas Appleseed, Austin, TX (moderator)
