Drake Legal Clinic Hosts Forum on Protecting Children
The Drake Legal Clinic recently sponsored the first national conference on the Pew Foundation's Fostering Results initiative. The initiative seeks to prevent unnecessary foster care placements, and to quickly and appropriately move children out of foster care and into safe, permanent families. Drake Legal Clinic's Children's Rights Project operates a unique partnership with the interdisciplinary Middleton Center for Children's Rights."We are very proud of the work we're doing with Pew and that we were selected to partner in this national project," said Suzanne Levitt, Executive Director of Clinical Programs at Drake Law School. Levitt notes, "We were further honored to be selected as the site for the first national conference on the report." Drake's recent press release has more information about the conference.
