Trainings

The Court Improvement Program provides training for judges, attorneys and foster care review boards.

The attorney training is a three-tiered training - beginning, intermediate and specialty training.

The beginning level training, Introduction to Child Dependency Law, is for the newly-licensed attorney or seasoned attorney who is in need of a refresher course. Practicing in Child Welfare Cases is the intermediate level program.
