Please join CHILDREN AT RISK for an informative and important symposium investigating protecting children's rights in an increasingly politically polarized environment. At a time when the divisions between people and parties seem at the greatest, it is more important than ever for attorneys to have the tools to protect and aid our children.  The 2018 Children's Law Symposium is a tremendous opportunity to earn CLE credit while learning about cutting-edge issues in immigration, foster care, education, juvenile justice, and more.

 

Registration begins at 7:50, and the symposium kicks off at 8:20
