Overview (Program Summary)
On September 26, 2023, ACC’s Pro bono Committee will partner with the Alliance for Children’s Rights to present a Foster Care Adoption Training.
The Alliance for Children’s Rights finalizes one third of all adoptions out of foster care in Los Angeles, County, primarily through the assistance of pro bono attorneys. Adoption allows children in foster care to transition into permanent homes that provide much needed stability, parental mentoring, and support. By assisting a family in finalizing an adoption, pro bono attorneys can help guide children to a more stable future.
The 1.5-hour CLE training will address how pro bono attorneys will speak with the family, prepare the Adoption Request form, and represent the family at the National Adoption Day hearing on November 18, 2023 at the Edmund D. Edelman Children’s Courthouse in Monterey Park, California.
A Foster Care Adoption case typically involves a time commitment of 10 to 15 hours total.
Please RSVP for the training by September 8, 2023.
