Minor GAL Training
Join us for this live training on representing the best interests of children as a Guardian ad Litem (GAL) in the Probate Division of Cook County. CVLS GALs serve as child advocates in contested guardianship cases, ensuring the safety, welfare, and best interests of low-income, court-involved children. This training will cover the skills and tools necessary to effectively serve as a GAL in Cook County, and what to expect over the course of a case. This session is for licensed attorneys interested in working as pro bono Guardians ad Litem for children through CVLS. No prior experience is necessary.
