The Court Improvement Program fosters its
mission by using technology to build systemic capacity, and advance judicial
and attorney knowledge and expertise.
The On-Line Attorney Dependency Training is intended to improve
legal representation of parents and children in dependency cases and is open to
all judges handling neglect and abuse cases and the attorneys appearing in
these courts. The distance learning environment maximizes accessibility and removes
the barriers of location, time, and costs.
The five course modules will be delivered entirely online
through the Supreme Court’s Distance Education Learning Portal. Course contents include: Federal and State
Law in Nevada Child Protection Proceedings; The Adoption and Safe Families Act;
Permanency Options; Roles and Responsibilities of Attorneys; Topics in Child
Welfare Proceedings; and Key Child Safety Decision Making Concepts.
Participants may enroll by contacting CIP.
They are expected to view all course presentations and materials, and
take the quizzes to earn 7 CLEs which include .5 hours for ethics.
Those Judges and attorneys interested in taking this course
contact Robbie Taft (email@example.com
or 775.687.9812) for registration information.
