This is an all-day CLE designed to assist practitioners in adding adoption as a practice area for their law firm.  In the morning, the course provides an overview of the different types of adoption such as independent placements, agency adoptions, foster care adoption and step-parent adoptions.  Attendees will then learn methods of obtaining new birth certificates and social security numbers, and special considerations for non-traditional families.  In the afternoon, participants will discover the pitfalls of out-of-state and intercountry adoptions.  The last part of our presentation will include practical advice for adding this practice area including how to find clients and set up your practice for success.  Finally, the day will end with a small wine and cheese networking event where local adoption agencies, social workers involved with adoption, and local adoption attorneys will be invited to mix and mingle with attendees.
