FAMILY LAW CLINIC PRACTICE PROGRAM

CLA provides general summary advice in areas of custody, child support and access and Public Legal Education Seminars.

ACADEMIC CREDIT

The CLA Family Law Practice Program (FLP) is a limited enrollment program in which students are placed at CLA for either one full term or two terms, part time. Students may take 8, 9 or 11 credits divided between two terms or complete all credits in a single, full-time term. Students may not enroll for fewer than 4 credits per term. 

QUALIFICATIONS

The CLA Family Law Practice Program (FLP) awards course credits to 2nd and 3rd year law students. Please advise whether you have taken Evidence and Family Law. Students enrolled in the Family Practice Program must also take the Clinic Seminar during the same term. The Clinic Seminar is a 3 credit course offered to students enrolled in the Academic Program.

RESPONSIBILITIES

Students must complete 3 self-evaluations and review them with their supervisors, the Academic Clinic Advisor and the Executive Director. The evaluations allow students to reflect on their performance as advocates, development of professional skills and knowledge and application of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The evaluations are meant to supplement the ongoing mentorship and supervisory relationship with the clinic lawyers.
