The Sol and Lillian Goldman Family, Advocacy For Children And Youth Clinic was started in 2003. The Clinic provides training to 20 law students a year as part of the law school’s curriculum. Students represent both children living in the home and children removed on an emergency basis at the time the proceedings commence. Students receive academic credit for their participation in the clinic working with the two staff attorneys. Law students are supervised by staff attorneys to assist clients referred from juvenile court and social service agencies. The clinic also retains social workers as paid consultants when needed.
