Adulting for Lawyers: Crushing that Awkward Phase when you Represent Emerging Adults

October 19 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

This is the first session of a virtual three part series that will help CAFL practitioners navigate zealously representing youth and young adults age 16 – 22. This session will include: a legal framework to represent clients age 16 – 22; signing in with DCF at age 18, myths versus reality; including how a CAFL social worker on your defense team can help you; how to work with the DCF adolescent outreach worker; a breakout session on barriers to advocacy; and client relations. Sessions 2 and 3 will take place in the winter and spring 2023, and will include a deeper dive into advocating for services and supports for your client. Approved for 3 CAFL credits.
