Children and the Law
This commission was formed to assess current programs designed to meet the legal needs of children. It is also charged with developing new projects to address the unmet legal needs of children.
The commission has also created the Stop Cyberbulling Campaign, an initiative of the Young Lawyers Conference aimed to educate parents, teachers, and children on the effects of cyberbullying and to ultimately stop cyberbullying.
