Guardian Ad Litem Basics, March 12, 2021 - CLE credit: Up to 8.0 hours includes 1.0 ethics and 1.0 elimination of bias

This program satisfies both the 8-hour and 3-hour CLE requirements of Standard 14.0 of the Missouri Supreme Court’s Standards for Guardians ad Litem. Presented predominantly in panel format for a more engaging virtual program, speakers will discuss child development, safety planning and reunification, alternative permanency through guardianship and adoption, the legal rights of older youth, and how bias and best interest are examined throughout child abuse and neglect cases. For those interested in learning more about the CASA Pro Bono Program and how to volunteer with CASA, please contact Judith Westmoreland, jwestmoreland@jacksoncountycasa-mo.org.

Description

Volunteering with Jackson County CASA is a rewarding opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of foster youth in our community. Our pro bono attorneys are asked to complete an additional 7 hours of training to be fully prepared and competent to independently handle a Jackson County CASA case in Family Court.

This complementary training session--focused on CASA’s unique multidisciplinary model and a deeper understanding of the child welfare system and its dynamics--will be held on Thursday, March 11, 2021 from 9:00am-4:00pm via webcast.  All of our volunteers must also submit to a criminal background and child abuse and neglect registry check.  For more information about CASA’s Pro Bono Program or other inquiries, please contact Judith Westmoreland, jwestmoreland@jacksoncountycasa-mo.org.
