Family Law

We provide legal advocacy in dissolution and custody cases. Through our practicum, we assist in the preparation, filing, and representation for dissolutions and custody cases. We have capacity to take cases during the semester and commit to seeing these cases through temporary orders even after the semester has ended. Students work under the direct supervision of a licensed attorney.

We also offer one day onsite or virtual clinics at our nonprofit partners across the state to assist in drafting parenting plans, filling out dissolution petitions, or to provide general advice and referrals.

We also provide policy advocacy by supporting other organizations with amici briefs and conduct research for more effective laws to support all kinds of families, especially the most vulnerable.
