Description
The Children’s Rights Clinic teaches students to practice law through three methods:  1) supervised practice, 2) class instruction, and 3) rounds.  Working under a supervising attorney, each student learns to practice by representing children as an attorney ad litem in real cases alleging child maltreatment brought by the state.  Students also meet together twice a week for classroom instruction on substantive law and policy, procedural and practice issues, and ethical issues.  More information is available on the clinic's webpage.
