This skills course introduces students to the practice of law in Arkansas’s civil child welfare system. The course reviews the complete life cycle of a simulated dependency-neglect case from the initial investigation stage all the way to the return of the juveniles to the parents, the termination of parental rights, or other possible outcomes. Students complete exercises on participating in hearings, oral advocacy, trial strategy, witness examination, and drafting legal documents.
This is an elective course.
