Family Law Symposium: Children of Addicted Parents - The Effects of Substance Abuse & Domestic Violence

DePaul’s Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center and LEDDED LTD. are hosting a full day symposium on the effects of substance abuse and domestic violence on children of addicted parents. Jerry Moe, the National Director of the Children's Program, Betty Ford Center, will be the featured speaker and participate throughout this unique symposium. Through various panel discussions with experts in the field, panelists and attendees will explore the overlooked topics of children of addicted parents, the effects of substance abuse with respect to parenting in today’s culture, representing addicted parents, the role of the judicial system when encountering addicted parents, and domestic violence as impacted by addiction in families.

Ticket proceeds and donations will go towards DePaul's first year Family Law Fellows as well as family law programing put on by the Center.

Six total Professional Responsibility Continuing Legal Education (PR CLE) credits, including mental health/substance abuse and/or diversity/inclusion, will be available to attorneys who register for the conference, pending approval from the Illinois State Bar Association. The morning and afternoon sessions, excluding lunch, will each have three hours of PR CLE credits. Certificates will be issued for MSW’s and LCSW’s for submission to their accreditation agency for credit approval.

Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support!
