Children’s Attorneys Project

Cute solitary little girl

Legal Aid Center attorneys provide counsel, advice and representation to abused and neglected children who have never before had representation. These attorneys serve as the child's voice before the court and community allowing the children to take an active role (and responsibility) in their own destiny. The Children's Attorneys Project was formed in 1999 from a task force of County Commissioners, Clark County District Court, Social Workers, Attorneys, Family Law Judges and State Children's Rights workers. The fundamental goal was to create a method for abused and neglected children, who are in foster care placement, institutions or wards of the state, to have a voice in court and speak out for their destiny.

On July 2, 2018, Legal Aid Center kicked off the #CAP100 Campaign.  #CAP100 encourages all local attorneys to volunteer as a pro bono attorney and represent a child in the foster care system.  Learn more about #CAP100 here.

If you want to volunteer to represent a child, our team will help you learn how.  Go to www.lacsnprobono.org/CAPmaterials.
