Children-at-risk forums planned Feb. 20 - 22

Addressing the legal needs of the 2.3 million California children who live in poverty is a top priority of State Bar President Marc Adelman. At the bar’s mid-year conference Feb. 20-22, workshops and a plenary session devoted to a range of children-at-risk problems will be offered. Planners hope that youngsters who have received legal assistance will participate as panelists.

Plans also are underway to ask local bar associations to develop projects to meet children’s legal needs.
