Can Class Action Lawsuits be a catalyst for change in child welfare? What can the Michigan Case tell us?
In February, 2009, the U-M SSW Children, Youth and Family Interest Group sponsored a Collaboratory to examine both the Lawsuit filed by Children's Rights against Michigan's Foster Care system and the Settlement Agreement. This year's Fauri Memorial Lecture will examine the progress toward Settlement goals. Using both information from the Federal monitor's reports and their experience, the panel members will provide an
assessment of Michigan's progress in implementing the Settlement Agreement. Panelists include:
Kathryne A. O'Grady, J.D., Sara Bartosz, J.D., Vivek S. Sankaran, J.D., and Kathleen Coulborn Faller, Ph.D., A.C.S.W., D.C.S.W.
Continuing Education Units are being offered for this lecture and are available for $20.00.
