JOHNSON CHILDREN AND THE LAW WORKSHOP
The Capacity of Children to Participate In Decisions Affecting Their Welfare

The Child Advocacy Law Clinic (CALC) at the University of Michigan Law School is pleased to announce the inaugural Johnson Children and the Law Workshop. The workshop will bring together speakers and students from a variety of disciplines including law, psychology and public policy to pursue questions that continue to perplex the law and policymakers and that are currently ripe for major policy reform. This year the workshop will focus on the capacity of children to participate in decisions affecting their welfare.

We invite you to participate in the workshop by attending the following presentations. The presentations will take place from 1:30 to 3:30 in Room 218 Hutchins Hall at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor.
