Whether representing children, parents or a child welfare or foster care agency, in private practice, government, public interest practice or as a policy advocate, the environment in which advocates operate is increasingly complex. This has never been more true as new initiatives in Family Court emerge. Join us for PLI’s 26th Annual Children’s Law Institute to learn about a variety of legal and social issues affecting child welfare and juvenile justice practice.

Christine Bruno – Center for Family Representation

Kelley Burnes – NYC Administration for Children’s Services
