LAW 7240 - Children & the Law Child Welfare Proceedings Law Firm Program

Description
This course will provide students the opportunity to engage in a simulated child welfare proceeding in the juvenile division of a family court. Students will assume the role of a young attorney who is appointed by the court to represent either a parent or a child in these proceedings. Students will handle a variety of issues involved in the case including issues that arise directly from the litigation such as evidentiary matters, burden of proof and conflicts of interest questions. They will be expected to file appropriate motions and memoranda with the court and participate in oral arguments and direct and cross examination of witnesses. Students will also advocate for their client in select collateral administrative proceedings such as special education hearings, Foster Care Review Board hearings and matters involving disability income and mental health concerns.
