New York Enacts Law Requiring Client Caseload Limits

Through the joint efforts of The Legal Aid Society and the Association of Legal Aid Attorneys, New York State enacted a law requiring client caseload limits for attorneys representing children in Family Court. In 2008, the State Office of Court Administration went on to establish a cap of 150 children as the limit for the number of clients an attorney for children can represent at one time.
