DUAL 44th National Child Welfare Law Conference
Aug 14 @ 8:00 am – Aug 18 @ 3:00 pm

Once again, the top leaders in child welfare law will come together – this time, both onsite and online.

NACC is committed to providing the highest quality legal education programs and networking events to strengthen and support child welfare legal professionals across the country. This continues to be a critical time for community, information-sharing, and dialogue as we redefine advocacy and legal representation during a public health crisis and a movement to end racism and bias in child welfare.

NACC is balancing the gradual return of onsite gatherings with providing an alternative for attendees who need or prefer an online event.

Our onsite conference will be in Denver, Colorado, August 14-15, 2021, with our pre-conference sessions August 13, 2021. All onsite programming will be at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. Hotel rooms are available starting at $169/night and can be booked HERE.

Our online conference will be August 16-18, 2021 in the comfort of your home or office… maybe the park.

Dual conference registration includes both onsite and online sessions and events.

Attendance at our onsite conference in Denver requires acknowledgment and agreement with NACC’s COVID-19 Waiver and Release. All onsite participants will be required to sign the waiver prior to or upon arrival to be admitted. CLICK HERE


Red Book Training – Online – Hosted by NACC
Sep 8 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Red Book Training Course – Fall 2021

This online Red Book Training Course is designed to assist you in preparing for the Child Welfare Law Specialist (CWLS) examination. It can also serve as an overall review of dependency competency areas. The course will consist of seven weekly webinars. The material covered in the course is drawn from Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and State Agencies in Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency Cases (3rd Edition). The course is intended to assist you in breaking the material down, focusing on important concepts, and guiding you through the material in the Red Book. This course will not cover every chapter. The instructor has made intentional decisions about what information to cover in the time that is allotted for the course. If a chapter is not covered, that does not mean that content from that chapter will not appear on the exam. Therefore, you should incorporate any chapters that are not covered into your self-study plans.
