Wells Conference on Adoption Law

Seventh Annual Wells Conference on Adoption Law 
Thursday, March 17, 2011
Maintaining a Family:  Post Adoption Challenges for Families

Join us at this year’s Wells Conference, Thurs., March 17, to hear from nationally-recognized professors and practitioners on such timely issues as:

  • Procuring Pre-Adoption Safeguards to Secure Post-Adoption Success
  • Overcoming Health and Assimilation Issues Facing Adopted Children and Their Families
  • What Happens When an Adoption Fails?

The Wells Conference strives to include both academic ideas and practical advice for attorneys. 6.0 CLE and CEU credit hours are pending approval. 

For more information and to register, visit the Wells Conference website.  For questions about the conference, call Ashley Blackburn, Symposium Editor, at 937-418-8599 or e-mail her at

The theme for this year’s conference was inspired by the case of the young Russian boy who was sent back to Moscow after his adoptive mother in Tennessee became overwhelmed with his emotional problems.  Our hope is to focus this year’s conference on ways to prevent an adoption from going wrong, and to recognize potential issues early in the adoption process in order to prevent situations like what happened in Tennessee.

 Capital University Law School is home to the National Center for Adoption Law & Policy.  In light of the Law School’s strong focus and dedication to adoption and family law, the Capital University Law Review initiated the Wells Conference on Adoption Law in 2005, and, due to its success, is proud to announce the Seventh Conference on Thursday, March 17, 2011, at the Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio.
