NACC Member-Only Webinar
This webinar will cover the ethical responsibilities that can be unique to children’s attorneys and how those obligations manifest in practice. Attendees will learn how to set and maintain boundaries with child clients. The webinar will reframe setting boundaries as modeling healthy behavior for children and youth who have experienced trauma. Attendees will also be encouraged to examine their own motivations for doing this work and the implicit biases that they bring to the work. The presenters will also address conflicts and attorney-client privilege within the context of representing children and youth. The presentation will include a discussion of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, specifically Rules 1.2, 1.4, 1.15, and 1.16.
