Legal Training for Dependency, Neglect and Abuse Cases (Guardian ad Litem Training Program)

Brandeis School of Law is pleased to announce the following course offering from the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts.

Since 1999, the AOC has been preparing attorneys to provide legal representation to dependent, neglected and abused children throughout Kentucky. Once again they are offering Legal Training for Dependency, Neglect and Abuse Cases (formerly the Guardian ad Litem Training Program).

The goal of this program is to produce highly qualified guardians ad litem by offering training sessions, providing educational materials and serving as a comprehensive resource. The curriculum gives guardians ad litem an overview of Kentucky statutory and case law while also meeting the federal requirements set forth in CAPTA (Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act) and ASFA (Adoption and Safe Families Act).

The basic program offers 6.25 credit hours of continuing legal education, which includes 1 credit hour of ethics. The advanced program offers 5.75 credit hours of continuing legal education, which includes 1 credit hour of ethics. The AOC has applied for continuing education units from the Kentucky Board of Social Work. The course will be offered at 3 locations in Kentucky.
