The Children’s Commission has created a distribution list of attorneys to inform legal practitioners about issues related to child welfare through a regular communique, the Attorney Resource Letter (ARL). The ARL features information about timely announcements, scholarships, upcoming trainings, along with updates on child welfare law and best practices and is shared via email distribution on a nearly-weekly basis. 

If you are interested in joining this list to receive the Attorney Resource Letter, please subscribe below.
