You will be able to designate whether you are attending in person or remotely; and whether you are interested in ordering a copy of Juvenile Court Law and Practice (Thomson-Reuters Pub., 16th Ed., 2021-2022) by Christine P. Costantakos, if a specially discounted rate is approved by the publisher.

Now in its 13th year, this seminar addresses more advanced areas of juvenile court practice. This year, we are honored to offer presentations by several judges, including two from the Nebraska Court of Appeals, who will present strategies for how to improve the prosecution of appeals.


Achieving timely permanency is a critical issue in child welfare cases. This year’s seminar features two panels that will address this issue, one from the bench and one from the bar. The panel of juvenile court judges will discuss barriers to permanency for children from the perspective of the bench. The second is a panel of highly-experienced child welfare attorneys who will discuss strategies for removing barriers to permanency.


There is as much need for zealous representation juveniles involved in delinquency and status-offense cases, as there is in abuse-neglect cases. A panel of experienced attorneys will offer their insights on the ethical duties surrounding the representation of juveniles involved in delinquency and status-offense cases.


This year’s seminar also includes a presentation from the “Educational Rights Counsel,” an organization whose goal is to generate systemic change in Nebraska by equalizing access to advocacy and legal representation for under-resourced families with a focus on special education support and student discipline.


This seminar is co-sponsored by Creighton University School of Law and the Guardian ad Litem Project, Inc., a Nebraska non-profit corporation. Lunch will be provided to those attending in person.
Upon registering, pending approval by the publisher, attendees may also choose to receive a link to order a copy of Juvenile Court Law and Practice (Thomson-Reuters Pub., 16th Ed., 2021-2022) by Christine P. Costantakos, at a specially discounted rate.


The seminar will be held at the Mike and Josie Harper Center located on the Creighton University campus at 602 N. 20th Street. Parking is available in the lot immediately to the south of the building and also in the lot immediately east of the law school.


Attendees may elect to attend the seminar by remote means.
