Right to Counsel
Supporting an Abused or Neglected Child’s Right to Be Heard Through Effective Counsel
The Institute continues the Right to Counsel Report Card series, published with the Children’s Advocacy Institute and University of San Diego, and related activities that support an abused or neglected child’s right to be heard through effective counsel. The Right to Counsel Series has 4 editions evaluating state laws authorizing the right to counsel for abused and neglected children. The ABA Model Act is consistent with the recommendations in the Right to Counsel Report Card reports.
