From the Trenches: Stories and Practical Tips From Those on the Bullying Front Lines
Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, AZ
Friday, October 11, 2013
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
This Program will give young lawyers insight into the issues and struggles faced by attorneys and other participants in representing juvenile clients in bullying cases. Speaking from first-hand experience, Program panelists will share their “war stories” in representing and/or interacting with children involved in bullying cases and discuss the particular challenges in working with juvenile clients in the bullying context. Panelists will also provide young lawyers tips and guidance when representing juvenile clients in bullying cases. In recognition of the fact that bullying cases present more than just legal challenges, Panelists will also focus on emotional, psychological, developmental, and school-related issues that may be present and how to deal with them. This Program will arm young lawyers with the tools and background needed to fully comprehend the complexity of bullying cases, and to enable them to better serve juvenile clients in bullying cases.
