Add To Calendar

Court leaders have worked hard to create more comfortable spaces for children who must testify or who are otherwise involved in court cases.  The nature of child dependency, neglect, and abuse cases often requires the participation of many more parties and attorneys than will fit in a normal courtroom.  Faculty for this session have experience in these types of proceedings and will provide insights that will help in designing new courthouses or remodeling existing facilities to address children’s issues.
