Hundreds of thousands of children annually encounter the American legal system in cases that involve abuse and neglect, termination of parental rights, special education, dissolutions of marriage, delinquency, mental health commitments, paternity, adoption, and other family matters. Too many of these children receive inadequate or sometimes even no legal representation, leaving children with little voice in legal matters.
The Clinic provides civil legal services in matters involving the care and support of minor children, such as guardianship, post-foster care adoption, non-marital child support and custody matters, and special education advocacy. Pro Bono Opportunities: Please contact the program.
