Now in its 10th year, this seminar addresses more challenging aspects of juvenile court practice, including issues relevant to guardian ad litem representation. Featured this year is a return of three psychologists and one psychiatrist from Children’s Behavioral Health to resume their discussion of mental health issues in juvenile court; and a panel presentation on the legal, social and psychological aspects of sibling relationships. Also included is a presentation on developing awareness and common-sense strategies to recognize and avoid situations that could pose a threat to the personal safety of those involved in child welfare cases, especially as child custody issues in juvenile court can sometimes raise the emotional levels of the participants. 

This year’s seminar is co-sponsored by the Guardian ad Litem Project, Inc., a Nebraska non-profit corporation organized for educational purposes, including the education and mentoring of guardians ad litem for juveniles in juvenile court  proceedings. Professor Craig Dallon will offer the opening address. 

For an additional fee, each registrant can choose to receive a copy of Juvenile Court Law and Practice (Thomson-Reuters Pub., 12th Ed., 2017-2018) by Christine P. Costantakos (list price $305). A box lunch will be provided on campus. Creighton University Law School is located at the corner of 21st and Cass Streets in Omaha. Parking is available at two visitor parking lots located at 21st & Cass Streets, and 24th & Cass Sts.

CLE credit is pending in both Nebraska and Iowa.
