Family Violence and Women’s Rights Clinic continues its innovative work

Students in our Family Violence and Women’s Rights Clinic have long advocated for clients in crisis, bringing the law to their defense with such tools as orders of protection and providing legal representation in custody and child support cases. As Domestic Violence Awareness Month comes to a close, it’s inspiring to see the range of work continuing in our clinic—all in service of safe homes and relationships.
