Family Law Clinic

Family Law Clinic

In the Family Law Clinic, qualified UA Little Rock law students receive a special license to practice law in Arkansas under the guidance of a supervising attorney. Clinic students learn the substantive law involved in each case while practicing the important skills of client interviewing and counseling, fact investigation, drafting pleadings and motions, witness preparation, negotiation, trial strategy, and trial presentation. Cases deal with family law. Students may represent clients who are victims of domestic violence, parents seeking to establish or modify visitation or custody arrangements, spouses seeking divorce, or family members establishing guardianship over disabled relatives.
