The CAC and the Law training is a one-day workshop specifically designed for Children’s Advocacy Centers. It describes the many legal issues that confront Children’s Advocacy Centers when their organizations and employees are brought into the legal process in criminal litigation as well as civil litigation and family court matters. This fast-paced session identifies, discusses and analyzes matters related to responding to records demands; preparing to testify; establishing a CAC “legal system” tailored to individual CACs; reviewing important statutes and case law that impact CACs and children; creating effective legal protocols that support MDT members; and much more.
The CAC and the Law training was created by Andrew Agatston, who began representing numerous CACs in 1998. He is currently the CEO and General Counsel for the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Georgia and also maintains a private civil litigation law practice. Since 2008 he has operated a national listserv for CACs, where he sends “Legal Letters” to 1,000 subscribers in all 50 states. The Legal Letter analyzes appellate cases from across the U.S. related to child molestation trials, and many of these rules of law are incorporated into this training. The CAC and the Law training has been presented to representatives of more than 175 CACs across the U.S. since 2012.
This course will be presented multiple times throughout the year. Only four states can be accommodated per session to allow the presenter to focus on laws for the states represented. States in this session include CACs and Chapter Directors in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas.
