Family Law Clinic
At the Family Law Clinic, students work under the supervision of a family law expert to provide legal assistance to low-income citizens at all stages of representation. The clinic represents victims of domestic abuse, and other individuals with family law disputes, including child custody cases.
Students have opportunities to fully engage in client representation under Pennsylvania's student practice rules in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County. The clinic provides live-client experiences and teaches students the skills of interviewing, counseling, negotiation, drafting pleadings, and advocating before the court.
