Free Red Book Training for Illinois Attorneys
The NACC Red Book Training is a 1-day NACC survey course on the NACC publication Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and State Agencies in Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency Cases (Duquette & Haralambie, 2nd Edition, Bradford Publishing 2010) (the Red Book).
Child welfare law is an increasingly complex area of practice. Practitioners must understand and be familiar with federal and state law and procedure, federal funding streams, medicine, mental health, and child development. This course covers the major competency areas of child welfare practice, including: the context of child welfare law, the legal framework for child welfare proceedings, navigating the legal process, roles and duties of legal counsel, and court room advocacy. The training will examine the federal law and policy that provide a framework for child welfare law in Illinois, and explore the intersection of federal law and state practice.
Eligible participants are attorneys licensed and practicing in the State of Illinois representing the state, children, parents, or the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services
