Interviewing the Child Client

We’re excited to announce that our training video, Interviewing the Child Client: Approaches and Techniques for a Successful Interview, is now available online in its entirety! We hope it can be used for both individual viewing and for use at training sessions.  This free 38 minute award-winning training video provides practical guidance and demonstrations of techniques that can help lawyers work effectively with their child clients. To order a copy of the full video contact Catherine Krebs.


Video: Make a Difference in a Child's Life

A valuable recruitment tool, this video describes two different cases and the impact the attorneys have had on the child they represent, and the impact the children have had on the attorneys.


Directory of Pro Bono Children's Law Programs

UPDATED 1/16/2007
The Directory contains listings of children's law projects including information about areas of representation, availability of manuals and literature, training sessions, and opportunities for volunteers. The Directory is a valuable tool for networking with other projects, and projects listed in the Directory can provide models for groups who are creating new projects. The Directory is organized alphabetically by state with separate sections for private organizations, law school clinics and law firm programs.

If you are aware of any changes that should be made in the Directory (e.g. addresses or phone numbers) or if you know of a children's law program that is not listed in the Directory, please contact Catherine Krebs.
