NACC 36th Child Welfare, Juvenile, and Family Law Conference
August 26-28, 2013
The NACC Conference is comprised of approximately 3-4 Plenary Sessions and 35 Breakout Sessions. The Breakout Sessions are concurrent sessions, which are currently organized along five tracks: Abuse and Neglect, Juvenile Justice, Family Law, Policy Advocacy, Children's Law Office Program, and Practical Skills. The NACC may choose to add or remove a track based on abstract submissions.
