CASA Legal Skills Training

Friday, March 5, 2021, 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Program attorneys will provide training to enhance your knowledge of court process and dependency law. For new CASAs, this is an opportunity to reinforce the information presented during OT and address questions you may have as you work on your first cases. The training will provide information based on the latest court procedural changes, statutory amendments and the impact of recent appellate cases on our practice. This training includes discussion of pertinent Guardian Ad Litem Rules but does not duplicate the GALR training. If you have previously done Legal 101/102 or Legal Skills training this will be a repeat, but you are welcome to attend.
Covered topics include:
- Overview of the shelter care process
- Negotiating agreed dependency and dispositional orders
- Motions
- Confidentiality, records, discovery
- Children’s attorneys
- Incarcerated parents
- Permanency planning from a legal perspective
o Reunification
o Non-parental custody
o R-GAP and guardianship
o Introduction to termination
o Adoption
- CASA responsibilities and rights/ GALR
- Working with CASA legal staff
