A Note From the Issue Editor
BY KRISTEN E. SIMMONS, ESQ.
This month’s issue of Nevada Lawyer discusses many different aspects of children and the law. In the first feature, Victor-Hugo Schulze outlines grandparent visitation statutes around the country and here in Nevada, and discusses the evolvement of the law for third-party visitation. Our second feature, by Janice Wolf, discusses the impact of AB350 on foster youth and illustrates the different paths foster children may take with the passage of this legislation. Finally, our third feature, by Ryan Sullivan, guides practitioners in how to communicate with teenaged clients in order to be the best advocates for teenagers. Nevada Lawyer focuses on children of all ages as they get involved with the law through state bar-supported programs such as Law Day Live and We the People. June’s Back Story highlights a useful attorney-created tool for individuals passing from childhood to adulthood, in Now That You are 18: A Survival Guide. Whether they represent children, have some of their own or just know some young people who could use a bit of good advice, we think our readers will find something of interest and value in this issue.
