100% Children’s Law
Does Use Volunteer Attorneys

 

In October, 1998, the Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP) established the Children’s Law Center to help more poor children get assistance from volunteer attorneys. The center has one attorney coordinator who administers the program. VLP also provides support thorough its staff. Volunteer attorneys are utilized on several projects. Guardian Ad Litem Project: Volunteer attorneys serve as guardians ad litem for children in custody disputes in order to advocate for the children’s best interests. The Children’s Law Center, Family Court, and Maricopa County Bar Association provide free CLE training for volunteer attorneys willing to assist a child through this project.

 

The FACT Project: The Children’s Law Center established FACT (Free Advice Clinic for Teens) to provide volunteer attorneys in the community to advise homeless and runaway teens. Attorneys visit the community sites for a block of time and give free legal advice to the teens. Each volunteer attorney is furnished with ‘Juvenile Rights and Responsibilities,’ a booklet put together by the Superior Court in Pima County, Pima Prevention Partnership / Teen Court, Teen Speak Out Committee and the Pima County Juvenile Court. Another pro bono project of the center is the Children with Disabilities Project, which arranges volunteer attorneys for children that are wrongly denied or dropped from their benefits. These children need Social Security funds in order to obtain special care. The Adoption Project matches volunteer attorneys with families who are caring for children and need legal help to adopt them. This is an opportunity to assist underprivileged children to achieve stability, security, and permanency.
