The 2007 Oregon Child Advocacy Project conference, “Independence Day,” will present the best research, legal reforms, and financial resources available to build a safety net for teens leaving foster care, youth corrections, and special education programs. It takes place on Friday, April 6 at the law school, 1515 Agate Street in Eugene, Oregon.
Speakers include experts on adult functioning of former foster youth, special education and transition to adulthood, multicultural youth, and girls in the juvenile justice system.
In addition to this annual conference, The Oregon Child Advocacy promotes judicial reform, and provides much-needed help for child advocacy lawyers. It was funded by a gift from Duncan Campbell ’73.
Each year, two or three law students are chosen as Campbell Child Advocacy Fellows. They receive stipends, conduct research and organize projects.
