The Juvenile and Family Law Clinic (JFLC) provides legal services for indigent children, youth, and families. Our clients are referred to us through the courts and Boulder County Legal Services. Children and families facing abuse, poverty, homelessness, and despair are among the neediest members of our community requiring quality legal representation. Student attorneys in the JFLC help meet that need.
JFLC clients are predominantly children and youth in the child welfare or the juvenile justice system, or low income parents needing divorce or custody assistance. Clinic students act as the lead attorneys on their cases, and work with their clients from the beginning of a family law case through its conclusion. Students are responsible for gathering information and documents, preparing court filings, appearing at court status conferences, mandatory mediation, and court hearings. The JFLC helps students to develop good client relationships, to become competent in Colorado juvenile and family law in particular, and in Colorado civil practice more broadly.
