COMPLEX ISSUES IN JUVENILE COURT PRACTICE
Now in its 9th year, this seminar addresses the more challenging aspects of juvenile court practice, including guardian ad litem representation. Special features this year include a presentation on mental health issues in juvenile court by a panel of clinical psychologists and a psychiatrist; and a presentation on children and human trafficking in Nebraska by the coordinator of the Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Task Force.
This year’s seminar is co-sponsored by Creighton University School of Law and the Guardian ad Litem Project, Inc., a Nebraska non-profit corporation organized for educational purposes, including the education and mentoring of guardians ad litem for juveniles in juvenile court proceedings.
For an additional fee, each registrant can choose to receive a copy of Juvenile Court Law and Practice (Thomson-Reuters Pub., 11th Ed., 2016-2017) by Christine P. Costantakos (list price $231.00). A box lunch will be provided on campus. The seminar will be held in the Gross Appellate Courtroom (Room 124) of Creighton University Law School located at the corner of 21st and Cass Street.
