CUNY: Family Law
Working within an interdisciplinary model with social work and other professionals, students work on a range of issues such as child welfare/child protection, juvenile justice, immigration, custody, visitation, support, orders of protection, and other family law issues. Through their field placement organizations, students represent domestic violence survivors, parents in child welfare cases filed by the New York City Administration for Children’s Services, and children in the Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Rights Division (in both protective and juvenile justice cases). Students work with an interdisciplinary team of social work professionals, parent advocates, community activists, and other professionals to provide comprehensive services to clients and gain first-hand experience with the similarities and differences in the ways that the professions identify and solve problems.
