Reflections on Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys Annual Conference

By Amy Rebecca Johnson

As a new fellow of the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys (AAAA), I was finally able to attend the annual conference, held this year in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this past week. The annual conference provides members the opportunity to have multiple days of seminars, presented by other members and experts, on issues important to adoption and assisted reproductive technology law. 

AAAA is a credentialed organization dedicated to the competent and ethical practice of adoption and assisted reproduction law. It advocates for laws and policies to protect the best interests of children, the legal status of families formed through adoption and assisted reproduction, and the rights of all interested parties. After becoming a member of the organization in December 2023, I was excited to attend my first conference and it did not disappoint. I met attorneys from both the US and abroad, all of whom have similar practice areas as I do with adoptions and assisted reproduction technology law. 

The conference gave me the opportunity to deepen my knowledge not only from the individual sessions that I attended, which included sessions on contested adoptions, international adoptions, and representation of foster parents but also to share with other attorneys who face the same types of cases that I do on a regular basis. Being able to acquire knowledge from others’ experiences and share my experiences with others allows me to grow in knowledge and care for my clients. 

If you or someone you know needs assistance with an adoption or assisted reproduction technology law, consider reaching out to me at Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal.
