Children and Families Law Clinic

Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include weekend days.

The Children and Families Law Clinic focuses on the legal needs of economically disadvantaged individuals. Family law constitutes one of the primary components of civil practice, particularly for practitioners in small firms. Key areas include custody and divorce, paternity, dependency, representation of teenagers and economic issues. Students will serve as interns either in the in-house clinic or in a legal aid or governmental agency that provides legal assistance to children and families or as externs at private law firms. 

Clinic Prerequisites

  • Family Law; Evidence; Professional Responsibility; and one litigation workshop
