Prof. Andrew Schepard Writes NYLJ Column on ‘Mediation and Family Group Conferencing for Child Protection’

Director of the Center for Children, Families, and the Law and Professor of Law Andrew Schepard’s column, “Law and Children: Mediation and Family Group Conferencing for Child Protection,” was published in the New York Law Journal.

SUMMARY:
There is no miracle cure for the misfortune, violence, poverty, substance abuse and poor judgment that result in children being placed in foster care. Nor is there a magic bullet to insure that we keep the promise of a reasonable chance at a stable childhood and adulthood we make to children placed in care. But two increasingly useful processes provide some measure of stability and voice for foster children: Child Protection Mediation and Family Group Conferencing.
