Child Welfare

The Child Welfare Clinic began as a pilot project in 2012 providing direct representation to youth in long-term foster care, or Permanent Managing Conservatorship (PMC) of the state. With the addition of an Equal Justice Works Fellow, the Clinic increased its focus on youth who were aging out of foster care, ensuring proper access to transitional services.

The Clinic continues to concentrate on youth advocacy but has shifted away from the direct representation model to allow students a more immersive and impactful experience in and outside the courtroom. More details will be forthcoming Spring 2016.
