Lawline Offers CLE Courses Approved for Guardian Ad Litem for Children Credit in Virginia

Shaun Salmon | October 25, 2019

In a press release yesterday, Lawline, the nation’s leading online Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider, announced that it now offers CLE programs approved for those serving as Guardians Ad Litem (GAL) for Children. Nine programs are available now on demand and one is airing as a live webcast on October 31, the Virginia CLE reporting deadline, for those who still need live webcast credits.  

Virginia’s rules require that all attorneys who wish to maintain their GAL qualification status complete six hours of approved continuing education every two years on topics relating to the representation of children. Highlights from the ten approved courses include:

               International Child Custody & Abduction 

               Current Issues in Representing Students with Special Needs

               Shielding the Abused: A Guide to Protective Orders in Virginia

               Student Discipline in Virginia: Current Trends & Advocacy Best Practices

All approved courses for GAL can be found here, and attorneys can even try out the entire catalog via Lawline’s free trial. Lawline also offers a unique, easy to use interactive platform and cutting-edge technology, and a comprehensive course catalog that is accredited nationwide. Lawline produces all of its CLE content in its own studio and at its own live events throughout the year.  

“The role served by a Guardian Ad Litem is important to both the system of law and - most importantly - to the child each GAL represents,” said Shaun Salmon, Lawline’s Director of Content. “We are so excited to offer courses to the Virginia attorneys who dedicate their time and energy to the well-being of children.”
