CPP Symposium Fall 2017
9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

Why is Minnesota Removing so Many Children into the Child Protection System: A Critical Look at the Removal Process in Minnesota Mitchell Hamline School of Law presents a CLE and continuing education credit conference addressing Minnesota’s removal processes. The presentation will focus on current social science research related to the experience of children during the removal process. We also plan to present a comprehensive overview of Minnesota’s removal data, including a focus on short stayers in the system (children who are removed and then returned within 30 days). Panelists and expert speakers from around the county will discuss best practices for child-centered removal. Further, Minnesota’s removal hearings will be discussed in detail including the law, current practices, and examples of national models for best practice at removal hearings. There will be time at the end of the day for interactive discussion among stakeholders as to how Minnesota could improve its removal processes and hearings. This event is recommended for judges, attorneys, child protection workers, children’s attorneys, and guardians ad litem. The cost will be $75 and a $25 discounted rate will be offered for public interest attorneys and staff using the CPP discount code. Lunch will be provided with cost of entry. CLE Credits pending. CLE Event time is 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with a networking reception after.

Alumni CLE: Buffer Law Basics: Application, Implementation, and Potential Constitutional Questions
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

The Alumni CLE Series presents "Buffer Law Basics: Application, Implementation, and Potential Constitutional Questions"

This CLE will focus on Minnesota’s 2015 Riparian Protection and Water Quality Practices Law—the so-called Buffer Law. The CLE will first discuss where the law applies, particularly what types of waters are subject to the buffer law and what exceptions apply. Next, the CLE will cover what must be done to implement and comply with the law, including deadlines, what constitutes a sufficient buffer strip, and what types of alternative practices might be put in place. Finally, the CLE will discuss potential constitutional issues facing the buffer law. 

Presenter Dean Zimmerli '14 (HUSL) is an attorney with Gislason & Hunter in New Ulm, MN. Dean focuses his practice on civil litigation and business issues including agriculture law, banking, corporate and employment law. Dean acquired a valuable work ethic growing up on a farm in rural Minnesota as well as a full understanding of agri-business issues. He provides service to his clients addressing their full range of legal needs through conducting research, drafting agreements and collaboration with other Gislason & Hunter LLP attorneys in contract negotiations, business growth ventures and financial strategies.
