Custody Advocacy Volunteer Training – Spring 2018

February 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Council for Children’s Rights Custody Advocacy Program (CAP) will host their spring volunteer training session on Monday, February 26, 2018 at the law offices of McGuireWoods.   The day-long training session will begin at 8:30 a.m.  and will conclude at 5:00 p.m.

The Custody Advocacy Program (CAP) of the Council for Children’s Rights (CFCR) advocates in family court for the best interests of children in high conflict custody litigation cases in which parental conflict and other issues are or can be in the way of the best interests of the children. You can become a part of this unique and rewarding program that seeks solutions for children during a very difficult, stressful and sometimes fearful time in their lives.

This seminar is for attorneys who are interested in pro bono representation of children, as well as paralegals and other community members who are interested in serving as custody advocates. (Note that attorney representation does not require courtroom experience or first chair courtroom participation.) This training is required for all CAP volunteers. Attorneys and paralegals will receive 7.75 hours of general CLE or CPE credit (CLE and CPE credit approval pending).

This opportunity is best suited to individuals with a flexible schedule and a strong commitment to serving children.  To learn more about the CAP volunteer program in general, contact Laura McCready at volunteer@cfcrights.org  or call the Council at 704-372-7961.
