Focused on the legal challenges facing vulnerable children, the Children's Rights Summit gathers child advocates, academics, law firm lawyers, in-house counsel and other experts to examine critical questions about how children can overcome challenges in the law. We examine barriers to children's rights and brainstorm ways new technologies and innovations should be applied to address them.
