MIAMI (AP) - A Miami law firm is helping foster children get legal representation or volunteer guardian advocates.

Akerman LLP is partnering with the National Court Appointed Special Advocates, pledging $1 million to the organization and working to create a model that can be replicated with other philanthropic businesses.

A significant portion of the money will go to the organization and its local guardian ad litem programs to strengthen its network of court-appointed advocates and volunteer training programs.

Funds also will be used to establish a scholarship for college-bound youth who have aged out of the foster care system.
