ABA Center on Children and the Law

ABA Center on Children and the Law aims to improve children's lives through advances in law, justice, knowledge, practice and public policy. In 1978, the American Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division created the ABA Center on Children and the Law. From modest origins as a small legal resource center focusing exclusively on child abuse and neglect issues, the Center has grown into a full-service technical assistance, training, and research program addressing a broad spectrum of law and court-related topics affecting children. These include child abuse and neglect, adoption, adolescent and infant/toddler health, foster and kinship care, education, juvenile status offenders, custody and support, guardianship, missing and exploited children, and children's exposure to domestic violence.
