Congrats to Laurie McManus, '76, on her DC Court of Appeals Victory.  The Court reversed a finding of neglect as to a child whose mother has a mental illness because the child had not been harmed and is not at substantial risk of harm from the mother's illness. 

We're also pleased to report that Laurie was aided in preparing for the argument by the UDC-DCSL Child Abuse and Neglect Moot Court Project!
