Using a practice framework, grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we will provide essential information on healthy development for children, best interest practices, and other access to justice needs at each age and stage of the child's life.

You will receive concrete examples and tips on how to adapt your practice to meet the child in their particular context.
