Pathway: Family & Juvenile Law

The Family & Juvenile Law Pathway is designed as a guided curriculum that will help you develop the skill set necessary to work or practice law in the family law and/or juvenile law community. Family and juvenile law attorneys serve clients in a broad array of legal areas, such as divorce, child custody, child abuse and neglect, domestic and international adoption, domestic violence and child support. Therefore, in addition to developing basic knowledge of family law, you must learn a variety of ancillary subjects, such as bankruptcy, tax and others listed in this Pathway. By following this Pathway, you will hone core legal analysis, research and writing and trial skills.
