The Academy of California Adoption Lawyers and the Academy of California Family Formation Lawyers are invitational societies of family formation law attorneys whose membership is limited to those licensed California attorneys with extensive adoption and assisted reproduction expertise whose practices are of the highest standards of ethics and professional competence. The Academy is a California non-profit corporation, and its members are separate and individual law practitioners.  

ACAL/ACFFL ATTORNEYS ASSIST the public by identifying competent family formation practitioners.

ACAL/ACFFL ATTORNEYS PROVIDE professional, public, and judicial education on adoption, assisted reproduction, guardianship, foster care proceedings, and related topics.

ACAL/ACFFL ATTORNEYS ENCOURAGE fair and balanced family creation laws and regulations.

ACAL/ACFFL ATTORNEYS ADHERE to standards of ethical behavior which are more stringent than those of the State Bar of California. We continuously strive to increase the competence of adoption law and family formation practitioners, and do our best to prevent the exploitation of those involved in family formation matters.

ACAL/ACFFL ATTORNEYS ARE DEDICATED to providing competent and knowledgeable assistance to clients at each stage of family formation matters. Each Academy member has completed a minimum of 200 successful adoptions or ART matters, or has other special expertise.
