SUBJECT MATTER WORKGROUPS
The Executive Council may approve subject matter workgroups of the section that will conduct meetings to discuss topics related to specific areas of public interest practice. These workgroups may make recommendations to standing committees for actions such as continuing education programs, legislative positions or amicus curiae briefs. At least once a year, the Executive Council will review the viability of continuing each of the subject matter workgroups.
The Children's Rights workgroup covers a wide range of issues impacting children. We engage in advocacy at the legislature and through appearance as amicus.
This workgroup explores guarantees of equal social opportunities and protection under the law for groups for which these rights are not historically enforced or afforded.
The Homelessness workgroup provides an opportunity for discussions about pertinent issues among a wide range of practitioners working on issues related to homelessness.
This workgroup looks at the issues related to attainment of citizenship and temporary or permanent relocation of individuals from one country to another.
This workgroup focuses on nonprofit law, the nonprofit community and the people it serves. It is an ideal fit for attorneys who are practicing and working in this area and from lawyers who serve on the boards of directors of a nonprofit organization.
The Parents' Advocacy workgroup covers a wide range of issues affecting parents and explores parents' legal rights.
