The faculty and students work to advance legal protections that provide stability to the family structure and nurture children's healthy development. Clinic participants also provide pro bono legal representation to individual children and families in crisis.
Students in the Child and Family Advocacy Clinic have the opportunity to represent family members in family law matters such as adoptions, guardianships, dissolutions, child custody and parenting time, paternity, education advocacy cases, impact litigation, and law reform.
In addition to gaining experience interviewing clients and witnesses, drafting legal documents, formulating legal strategies, and conducting legal research, factual investigations, and discovery, certified law students also have the opportunity to make courtroom appearances and conduct depositions many semesters.
