From the FLP mailbox, this notice that Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio will sponsor its 7th Annual Wells Conference on Adoption Law on March 17, 2011.
The conference will include nationally-recognized professors and practitioners speaking on such timely issues as:
- Procuring Pre-Adoption Safeguards to Secure Post-Adoption Success
- Overcoming Health and Assimilation Issues Facing Adopted Children and Their Families
- What Happens When an Adoption Fails?
The Wells Conference strives to include both academic ideas and practical advice for attorneys.
The theme for this year’s conference was inspired by the case of the young Russian boy who was sent back to Moscow after his adoptive mother in Tennessee became overwhelmed with his emotional problems. Our hope is to focus this year’s conference on ways to prevent an adoption from going wrong, and to recognize potential issues early in the adoption process in order to prevent situations like what happened in Tennessee.
