TULSA LAWYERS FOR CHILDREN, INC.
SETS SPRING TRAINING
Did you ever think that there might be more to the practice of law than what you’re doing now?
Did you start law school thinking you wanted to do something important?
Would you like a chance to branch out a bit as a lawyer, but don’t know if you would be competent in other areas of law?
Law Students, have you considered stepping into the courtroom before you passed the bar?
IF SO, TULSA’S ABUSED & NEGLECTED KIDS NEED YOU!
Tulsa Lawyers for Children, Inc. (“TLC”) recruits, trains and provides ongoing assistance to volunteer attorneys who represent children up to 18 years of age who have been abused, neglected or abandoned and who are subjects of “deprived” cases in the Tulsa County Juvenile Court. TLC volunteers include not only litigators and family lawyers, but corporate attorneys, former judges, former general counsels of large public companies, patent and trademark attorneys, law school professors and many others who bring their experience, talent and dedication into a system largely hidden from public scrutiny by the veil of confidentiality which cloaks juvenile proceedings. One of the ways TLC provides ongoing assistance is its T.U. Law Student Pro Bono Project and its Shelter Visitation & Show Cause Hearing Project. T.U. Law Students attend the same training as attorney volunteers and then act as volunteer legal assistants to volunteer attorneys on their TLC cases. This is particularly helpful when timely visits with the child clients become difficult for the attorney. Law Students also interview children coming into the shelter and appear at “show cause” hearings as GALs.
The next training program for TLC volunteer lawyers will be held at the University of Tulsa College of Law and will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Each of the sessions covers different material:
Friday, April 5th (Basics of deprived case) Room MLIC 1403
Friday, April 12th (Child's attorney's duties; Role of DHS) Room MLIC 1403
Friday, April 19th (ICWA; Procedures; Jury trials;
In need of treatment) Room MLIC 1403
Friday, April 26th (Communicating with the child client) Room MLIC 1403
Attendance at the training program does not obligate you to take a case nor to participate in the TLC projects. You have nothing to lose - and Tulsa’s kids have so much to gain. Please join us!
