The Child as The Client: The Ethics of Representing Children in Juvenile Court Featuring Ari Mathe'

October 25, 2016

Attorneys representing children in both delinquency and deprivation matters frequently encounter ethical quandaries related to their role as the attorney for a child. Counsel for children must be committed to her duty under the Rules of Professional Conduct to provide the client (the child) with zealous advocacy and meaningful representation through a relationship based on trust and respect for the child as the client. This commitment, however, often finds the attorney placed at odds with others in the court system, including parents, probation officers, case managers, guardians ad litem, and even judges.

This webinar will seek to explore the push and pull children's attorneys experience in representing children and dealing with other players in the system while maintaining the ethical standards required by the Professional Rules. The webinar will highlight the law and best practice policies regarding the issue through a lecture format, then to engage in a discussion and debate with participants about their impressions of the issue, and to explore options available to children's attorneys in managing relationships with clients, their parents and others involved in the child's case, in terms of both in-court and out-of-court communication and advocacy.

In 2013, Georgia adopted its new evidence code, patterned after the federal rules of evidence. Almost immediately, there was a divide among legal observers. Many remained fixated on pre-2013 Georgia evidence authority. Others, like ICLE's Carlson on Evidence, provided readers with expansive federal authority to apply to Georgia's new evidence code.

In a series of dramatic 2015 decisions, the Georgia Supreme Court resolved the issue. Federal case law - the Eleventh Circuit's in particular - should be used to interpret Georgia's new and federalized evidence provisions. Notable Georgia Court of Appeals decisions have aligned with this approach.

Since its first edition, Carlson on Evidence has focused on comprehensive, rule-by-rule, comparative examination of Georgia's new evidence code and its federal counterpart. In its fourth edition, Carlson on Evidence has expanded its unparalleled content even further with a wide array of 2015 Georgia and Federal evidence authority and analysis.

Make sure your law library, trial notebook, and appellate binder have the latest edition of ICLE's Carlson on Evidence.
