At the NACC, we work to engage our community of child welfare professionals in meaningful discussion about topics of particular significance to child welfare, juvenile justice, and family law. In addition to our weekly blog, we provide NACC members with a subscription to our monthly law journal and access to our NACC listserv. For more information on each of these resources, as well as how to write for the NACC, please see below.
NACC Child Law Blog
Written by NACC staff members, community members, and leading experts on topics impacting child welfare; Children, Families and the Law asks how we can meet our professional and ethical obligations to children and families involved in child welfare, juvenile justice, and family law matters. The blog tackles core subjects like child abuse, child neglect, delinquency, and family conflict; but also covers topics like healthcare, education, and race.
