Qualified Children's Attorneys

2013 Form to Submit Attorney Hours

Rule 33, Part II, Subpart I of the Supreme Court Rules provides for qualification of children’s attorneys by meeting 3 requirements (licensed, in good standing, completion of 6 hours of approved legal education).  The Supreme Court does not “qualify” attorneys per se, but does maintain a list of those attorneys who have met the qualification requirements.  So attorneys are qualified as soon as they have met all three requirements, even if they haven’t sent in their paperwork and/or their names have not yet been posted on the website.

Section 1.   Purpose

This rule provides an administrative procedure to ensure appointment of qualified counsel to children in child abuse and neglect proceedings.

Section 2.   Applicability

The provisions of this rule apply to all counsel appointed on or after July 1, 2005 to represent children in Child Abuse and Neglect Cases, as defined in Rule XXXIII, Part I, Section 2.

Section 3.   Qualifications of Appointed Counsel

A.  Prior to appointment as counsel for children in child abuse and neglect proceedings, an attorney shall have the following qualifications:

The attorney shall be licensed to practice law in the State of Louisiana and in good standing with the Louisiana State Bar Association; and …

Effective January 1, 2006 and thereafter, the attorney shall complete a minimum of six hours of approved continuing legal education each calendar year, and shall submit to the Supreme Court documentation of compliance no later than January 31 of the following calendar year.

The requisite education shall include relevant law and jurisprudence, child development, child abuse and neglect, and the roles, responsibilities and duties of independent counsel for children, including the Standards for Representation of Children.

B. Attorneys shall submit evidence of their qualifications to the Louisiana Supreme Court, Division of Children and Families, and a list of attorneys qualified for appointment shall be maintained and published by the Court.

C. Appointment of counsel for children in child abuse and neglect cases shall be made from the list of qualified attorneys, except when the court appoints an attorney otherwise qualified but not yet on the list. In that case, the court shall document the qualifications of the attorney and instruct the attorney to file the documentation with the Supreme Court.

The 6 hours of “approved continuing legal education… shall include relevant law and jurisprudence, child development, child abuse and neglect, and the roles, responsibilities and duties of independent counsel for children, including the Standards for Representation of Children.”  These hours may also qualify for MCLE hours.  For example, we allow all 6 hours to be completed online, but in accordance with their rules the Bar will not give credit for all 6 online hours towards MCLE.  There may be other trainings that meet our requirements that have not been approved for MCLE – such as some national conferences – but just because we will accept those hours does not mean that the Bar will.  Likewise, there may be MCLE approved trainings that we would NOT consider appropriate for approval… usually based on the relevance of the subject matter.



SMA Chandler has crossed the line with his tougher grooming regs. No body piercings visible, no tats visible above the neckline, no purple hair, these I get. I remember when I came in and went to basic training in the 1980s. Many of these so-called "new" regulations and standards were in place then and, in fact, were more restrictive. I was jumping with joy upon hearing that many of these standards are being put back in place. I will be happy to see professional-looking soldiers who are proud to wear this uniform, not the ragtag, fall-out-of-bed Army that this has become. Henry Holt and Co. A half century of trituberculy. The Cope-Osborn theory of dental evolution, with a revised summary of molar evolution from fish to man. Signal processing after digital image acquisition also generally improves the visualization of structures that might not be visible on an analog film image, for example those overlying the mediastinum and heart. This post-processing cannot generally be done when analog images are digitized. Another barrier to using scanned, digitized versions of analog images is the absence of an industry-wide standard for the digitizing process that is documented to provide image characteristics that are relatively uniform and acceptable for pneumoconiosis classification. The industry comments state that disallowing converted radiographs is contrary to the ILO Guidelines and that the ILO itself converted its standard film radiographs to create standardized digital images for use with the ILO classification system. While the ILO Guidelines do not prohibit application of the classification system to converted radiographs, the Guidelines are necessarily broad because they are used worldwide, including countries where the industry has strict standards for conversion processes and the associated hardware ( e.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has many research programs aimed at slowing the progression of CKD. For example, the NIDDK is sponsoring the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort study to determine the risk factors for rapid decline in kidney function and development of cardiovascular disease. This study of about 3,000 patients with chronic renal insufficiency, another way of describing CKD, will reflect the racial, ethnic, and gender composition of the people in the United States who have permanent kidney failure. The data collected and specimens obtained from people in this study will serve as a national resource for investigating CKD, as well as cardiovascular disease. Establishing this group of patients and following them into the future will also provide an opportunity to examine genetic, environmental, behavioral, nutritional, quality-of-life, and health resource use factors in this population. The main part of the study will consist of monitoring participants and following up at regular clinic visits with kidney function measurements, cardiovascular studies, and lab tests. It is the main argument in my mind against just calories counting, when the body is represented as a simple mechanical system. My understanding is, that energy distribution is influenced by macronutrients combination. High carbohydrate content favors fat storage and more energy is stored in a fat tissue and more energy is conserved (less desire to move, cold tolerance is decreased, hunger is higher ). There is more avenues for energy conservation. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. I had to choose between two options, for a specific illness. Alternative medicine is less proven, by comparison.
