100% Children's Law
Does Use Volunteer Attorneys
The Children's Attorneys Project began in October 1999 through a Task Force composed of judges, court administrators, legislators, professors and others. The Project's nine attorneys represent children as attorneys in abuse and neglect cases. The Project also has two specific areas of focus: the Special Education Program and the Educational Surrogate Parent Initiative. Referrals come from juvenile court, social services agencies, schools, health care professionals and other attorneys. The Project utilizes law students, works with the William S. Boyd School of Law's clinical program and has begun a pro bono program for attorneys to represent children. Trainings for volunteer attorneys will be conducted as needed. Last year volunteer lawyers donated 10,000 hours to pro bono representation.
