The ABA Center on Children and the Laws mission is to promote access to justice for children and families. Our staff of 16 legal and core professionals work on grant-funded projects across the country that are unified by two complementary goals, to improve legal representation and to improve the legal systems that impact children and families lives. We achieve our mission and goals through a three-tiered approach. First, the Center works in individual communities across the country where it partners with local stakeholders-including courts, child welfare agencies, lawyers, tribes, schools, and legislators-to build the capacity of legal practices and systems that serve children well and to help change those that do not.
