“Legal Needs of Children Committee”
From the Summary from the Florida Bar Board of Governor’s Meeting, February 2008:
"Approved as a Bar legislative position supporting the Supreme Court’s certification of 61 new trial court judges. The board also approved allowing the Legal Needs of Children Committee to push for the creation of a comprehensive state system for representing children in court, which includes the Guardian Ad Litem Program, public defenders, and legal counsel for children. The approval came with the understanding the committee may bring specific legislation to the Bar with a request that it be supported as a Bar as well as a committee position."
