A year after Children’s Law Center released a plan to improve the District’s children’s mental health system, a report card shows some progress in three key areas, but that much more work needs to be done.
Skadden's DC office will join lawyers from LivingSocial, Northrup Grumman and Cisco Systems for a new "Impact Project," which will bring new pro bono attorneys to Children's Law Center and two other legal services organizations.
Children’s Law Center will showcase successful educational advocacy at the 2012 Helping Children Soar Benefit. The September 13 event will feature middle school student Sky Stringer, a Children’s Law Center client, as emcee. Arnold & Porter LLC and the General Electric Company will receive awards for their partnership for pro bono special education representation.
Children’s Law Center issues a blueprint for change in the District’s children’s mental health system with a plan being released tomorrow. Based on comparisons to national statistics, there are at least 5,000 children in DC who do not receive the mental health treatment they need.
Children's Law Center welcomes the announcement of a permanent director for the District's Child and Family Services Agency. A committed leader for CFSA means that desperately needed changes in policy and practice may finally be within reach.
Children’s Law Center and Arnold & Porter filed a lawsuit against the District of Columbia challenging the District’s infringement on the rights of children and their parents who live outside the District to live together.
Children’s Law Center warns that while the District deserves credit for making enough progress to exit the Dixon class action lawsuit, the children's mental health system remains in need of major reforms and improvements.
CLC's mission fits perfectly with our "KidsFirst" initiative at McDermott Will & Emery. Our lawyers participate in special education appeals, adoption matters and guardian ad litem work. The commitment and expertise of CLC's staff is extraordinary, and their training and ongoing mentoring are first-rate. This has become one of our broadest and deepest pro bono relationships firm-wide.
