Tulsa Lawyers for Children Holding Training Sessions at TU

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Tulsa Lawyers for Children, Inc. (TLC) will train lawyers and law students to represent children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and who are subjects of "deprived" cases in the Tulsa County Juvenile Court.

TU law students attend the same training as attorney volunteers and then serve as volunteer legal assistants on the cases. Law students also interview children coming into shelters and appear at "show cause" hearings as guardians ad litem.

Attendance at the training does not obligate anyone to take a case. Training sessions at the College of Law will occur on March 25, April 1, April 8, and April 15. All sessions must be completed, either in person or later by video, in order to represent child clients in the program.

For more information, contact the Professional Development Office at 918-631-2430 or lawprofessional-development@utulsa.edu.
