The following essay is adapted from Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and State Agencies in Abise, Neglect, and Dependency Cases, published this summer by Bradford Publishing Company (1743 Wazee Street, Denver, Colorado 80202; www.bradfordpublishing.com). It appears her with permissin of Bradford Publishing Company and the National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC).
This book is intended to serve as a resource for agency, parent, and children's attorneys who are preparing for the NACC [National Associaiton of Counsel for Children] child welfare law certification exam. Bit it is more than an exam study guide. The NACC believes that the material in this book represents the body of knowledge that defines child welfare law as a specialized field of legal practice. We believe this publication can serve as a general reference for the child welfare law practitioner and as a guide to develop and deliver much needed training for child welfare lawyers throughout the country.
