Improving the Appellate Process

Improving the Appellate Process

Analyzing appellate data helps ensure a more uniform appellate practice in dependency matters.  J4C enabled attorneys with the State Bar to conduct a time study of appellate cases, which was completed in 2015 and presented as a class to Georgia child welfare attorneys.  Case-law updates have also been provided to practitioners through the Georgia Association of Counsel for Children, which is supported by our CIP grant funds.
