Cathy Krebs serves as the committee director of the American Bar Association’s Children’s Rights Litigation Committee. Krebs works with CRLC leaders to implement the ambitious agenda of the committee, which was created to address the vast under representation of children in all aspects of the legal system. The committee endeavors to inspire and assist lawyers to undertake the direct pro bono representation of children and to support and multiply the number, range, and quality of children’s legal projects.
The committee offers support, training, referrals, and information to lawyers and children’s law programs to assist them in providing the highest quality of representation for children. Prior to her position with the committee, she worked at the Children’s Law Center of Massachusetts (CLCM), first as a Skadden Fellow where her project focused on representing children in abuse and neglect cases and expediting their cases to a permanent plan. Following this fellowship, she became a staff attorney at CLCM where she continued to represent children in abuse and neglect cases as well as education cases.
