Who We Are
Faculty members in the Program on Children and the Law are among the nation's experts on issues of child welfare and juvenile justice. In addition to teaching clinics, doctrinal courses, and seminars involving children's law, faculty members are actively involved in the state and national child-welfare community. Professors serve on boards of national organizations, regularly present at conferences, and conduct research on pressing child-welfare issues. Work done by the faculty has been cited in governmental studies, court decisions, newspaper and journal articles, and on television. They are frequently called on by attorneys, judges, legislators, foundations, and others to consult on key issues. Faculty seek to work with stakeholders to reform the child-welfare system to better serve the needs of children and their families.
