CLE on Student Tribunal Hearing Training
3.25 CLE Hours
What: As part of the Atlanta Bar Association's Pro Bono March Madness series, our Young Professionals Council is hosting a CLE to train attorneys to represent students who are facing public school disciplinary hearings. Under Georgia law, K-12 public school students faced with proposed out of school suspension of more than ten days or with expulsion, are entitled to dispute the proposed disciplinary action at an administrative hearing often referred to as a 'tribunal.' Because of the impact a long term suspension or expulsion may have on a student's academic success and on the flow to the “school to prison pipeline,” it is important that the tribunal process provide meaningful due process to a student. Public school students in foster care sometimes face a disciplinary hearing alone. Attorneys completing the CLE may opt to enter a pool of trained volunteers to provide tribunal representation to a child in foster care. To accomplish this, Georgia Appleseed has created a protocol in collaboration with Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and the Georgia Office of the Child Advocate (OCA) to identify students in need of assistance and match them with an attorney.

CLE on Heirs Property Training
3 CLE Hours, 1 Professionalism Credit
What: Heirs property consists of real property that has been passed from generation to generation, leading to joint ownership among many family members. The result is often clouded and fragmented title, which prevents individual family members from reaping the financial gains of the property or increasing its value and building generational wealth.
The Heirs Property in Georgia seminar will provide both urban and rural practitioners with information about Georgia intestacy laws and tools to protect and preserve low to moderate-income landowners’ property, including instruction on probate administration, quiet title actions, adverse possession claims, and partition actions. The seminar will increase the capacity of practitioners to offer pro bono services to remedy the problems associated with heirs property, preserve low income landowners’ property from loss and generate wealth and economic value.
