April 15, 2009 – Whether you are new to the guardian ad litem (GAL) role or returning for a refresher, the upcoming State Bar GAL training seminars have something for everyone. Attend the sessions that work for you.
The half-day Basic session prepares attorneys to take on a GAL appointment and also helps existing GALs with limited experience better understand their role.
The half-day Intermediate session addresses ethics, interpreting and understanding behavior of the domestic violence client, and working with both family court and children’s court.
The full-day Advanced session addresses cross examining expert witnesses, working with pro se litigants, getting records from school districts, defining the best interest of children, and partnering with mental health professionals.
The Challenge is $25,000–You Can Help Meet that Goal!
