The Attorneys for Children (AFC) Program invites members of the BAEC to apply for their introductory training webinar on October 17, 18, and 19 (agenda, application, and memo attached.) Applications will be accepted until October 7.
AFC represent children of all ages, primarily in Family Court matters. They are compensated by New York State at the rate of $75/hour. Although the rate of compensation is modest, payment is guaranteed, and many AFC find the work to be extremely rewarding, both personally and professionally. Most AFC are solo or small firm practitioners. Like assigned counsel work, AFC assignments can be a great way to build your own practice.
Attorneys must apply to attend the training, and we are happy to work with those who need help obtaining the required Family Court experience.
Below find the application and the training agenda.
