In 2018, the Commission on Youth at Risk became a part of the ABA Center on Children and the Law. The Commission contributes a critical component of ABA member engagement to the Center’s work by elevating child and youth law topics in the legal profession within and outside the ABA. Commission member responsibilities include:
1) Setting the ABA’s national policy agenda on child and youth law;
2) Ensuring the ABA speaks with a unified and coordinated voice on child and youth law topics; and
3) Developing presentations to engage and inform the legal field about child and youth law.
