Children and Family Law Advocates

  • Children and Family Law Advocates ("CFLA") seeks to:

    • Prepare law students for practice in the areas of family and child law by providing an array of programming options to help students acquire the necessary skills and experience to practice in this field.
    • Supplement the law school curriculum with events and activities which expose students to both the benefits and challenges of practicing in the field of family and child law.
    • Reduce the shortage of trained and dedicated child advocates by recruiting new attorneys through exposure to the range of available career paths.
