Bloomington, IN, United States, 2009/09/22 - The Legal Eagles of Children’s Advocacy Centers helps prepare children’s rights advocates and professionals address legal issues and face rigors in the courtroom.
Children’s rights advocates and professionals working in Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) spend a great deal of their lives working to help victims of child abuse. CACs implement a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate, treat and prevent sexual and physical abuse of children.
However, allegations of child abuse are settled in the court and CAC centers often lack qualified legal counsel to make the legal process flow. Thus, professionals may find the rigors of the courtroom rather confusing and complicated.
This prompted lawyer Andrew Agatston to self-publish the book, The Legal Eagles of Children’s Advocacy Centers. The Xlibris published book is a collection of Agatston’s legal letters to CACs, child advocates and detectives that helps pave a path toward becoming Legal Eagles.
People working in Children’s Advocacy Centers will find this self-published book useful as it provides an overview of, and addresses many legal concerns CACs may face. The Legal Eagles of Children’s Advocacy Centers can help to better improve the legal system’s response to child abuse as well as programs that serve these children.
