THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR ADOPTION LAW AND POLICY (NCALP) at Capital University
Law School works to improve child welfare and adoption law, practices, and
policies so that all children - especially those who have been abused or
neglected or are dependent on the state for their care - can have healthy, safe
and stable homes. NCALP addresses this goal through training, advocacy,
education, and services for foster youth, family stakeholders, and legal and
social work practitioners, and through programs aimed at developing the next
generation of adoption and child welfare professionals.
OHIO CHILD PROTECTION LAW REFORM INITIATIVE
The Ohio Child Protection Law Reform Initiative is a ground-breaking effort of the Subcommittee on Responding to Child Abuse, Neglect and Dependency of the Supreme Court of Ohio Advisory Committee on Children, Families, and the Courts aimed at responding to concerns about inconsistent application of Ohio's child protection law and widely differing approaches throughout the state in decision-making, investigative practices and adjudication.
