Legal Advocates for Children and Youth
The goals of Legal Advocates for Children and Youth (LACY) are to provide a community for law students interested in legal work with young people and to advocate for better programming, funding, and faculty for child- and youth-related law at the Law School. LACY also promotes school year and summer internships with organizations working on youth legal issues, and creates opportunities for law students to learn about ways in which practicing lawyers work with children and youth. LACY focuses on issues including, but not limited to, juvenile justice, abuse and neglect, education, mental health, family law, disability law, public benefits law, and adolescent health issues.
