Representing the Teenage Parent
Part 2: Supports and Strategies [WEBCAST ONLY]

29 juil. 2020

OBA Child and Youth Law PROGRAM | 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)

Teen parents hold a contradictory place in the law.  They are bestowed with adult responsibilities, but their age disqualifies some from being treated as adults. Explore this dynamic and others with our expert faculty during this two part series as we unravel the different legal issues and practice considerations surrounding the teenage parent. Hear how child welfare, family law, and social and education services support can intersect and impact your dealings with the teenage client and external parties.  Equip yourself with the strategies and insight necessary for effectively managing the unique challenges of the teenage parent interacting with the law with this valuable series.

During Part 2: Supports and Strategies, hear from our exceptional panel on:

  • What unique practice issues arise when representing the teenage parent
  • Maintaining an effective solicitor-client relationship with the teenage parent
  • How to identify and use social services providers and partners
  • Working with the Children’s Aid Society
  • Dealing with educators and school board programs
  • Opposing counsel: friend or foe?
