Family + Juvenile Law Society

The Family & Juvenile Law Society provides a forum for students who are interested in practicing family and/or juvenile law in order to:

  • Meet to discuss aspects of their future career goals and provide mutual support
  • Network with attorneys practicing in the field
  • Organize interesting colloquia for the student body on topics of interest in the field
  • Advocate within the law school for continued excellence in education for future family and juvenile lawyers.

Recent programs sponsored by the society include a bake sale to raise funds for the Children's Law Center, a holiday toy drive to benefit The Children's Center of Hamden, trips to family and juvenile court, and a panel discussion on the tax implications of divorce.
