Session Track

Maximizing the Juvenile Court System for Young Children

Session Time

June 28

In the last year, both federal and state authorities have made significant changes to the laws and guidelines regarding ICWA cases. On the Federal level, the Bureau of Indian Affairs made the first major amendment to its ICWA guidelines since their original creation in 1979. And on the state level, Nebraska made significant revisions to its state Indian Child Welfare Act statute. This presentation looks at the changes in both sets of rules, how those changes interact with each other, and how they affect practitioners in the field.
