Please join the Duke chapter of Guardian ad Litem for an informational meeting. A guardian ad litem is a volunteer appointed by a judge to assist the court in determining the circumstances of a matter before the court. It is the fundamental responsibility of the guardian ad litem to provide independent recommendations to the court about the client's best interests, which can be different from advocating for what the client wants, and to bring balance to the decision-making process. The GAL may conduct interviews and investigations, make reports to the court, and participate in court hearings or mediation sessions. Learn how to become a GAL at the meeting! For more information, please contact co-presidents Chantalle Carles (Chantalle.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Erin Malone-Smolla (Erin.email@example.com). Lunch will be provided.
