The National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC), a Colorado-based nonprofit that offers training to child law attorneys, is headed for Philly this summer, and it ain’t for the DNC.
No, the national organization is coming to the East Coast to rally developers and technologists around the need to leverage tech for better child law practices during the Child Welfare Law & Technology Hackathon, part of their 2016 national conference.
From Aug. 13-14, at the Loews Hotel, some 600 child welfare attorneys and researchers will work alongside developers to come up with tools to help fix five key issues:
- How to enhance and evaluate child welfare law skills
- How to improve quality of counsel in lawyers with big workloads
- How to leverage knowledge from child welfare lawyers to help overall child counsel
- How to recruit better practitioners to the child welfare law field
- How to engage kids during dependency court processes
At the end of the 24-hour session, each team will share and discuss the solutions they developed during the conference’s closing session.
Those interested in joining can email Amanda Butler, program coordinator at NACC, by July 25 at email@example.com.
