This article deals with children’s advocacy in areas of law, education, and services. In family law proceedings, family group conferences are suggested to ensure that the rights of the child are being upheld during the process. Pre-hearing conferences are also suggested to “encourage the adoption in all jurisdictions of effective conferencing models.â€? Implementation of these conferences will occur with the help of research done by the Australian Child Protection Advisory Council. Various rules and regulations established by advocates have also been included in this document.
