The Children’s Rights Clinic

Whittier students who participate in the Children’s Rights Clinic represent the interests of children under the supervision of staff attorneys. The clinic provides students with exposure to many legal issues that affect children, including special education, guardianship, adoption, limited conservatorship, domestic violence, general family law, and, most recently, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases. The clinic provides students with unique opportunities to develop and hone the many skills essential for effective law practice. Students interview clients, negotiate with interested parties, research and draft court documents, and represent clients in administrative and court proceedings. Clinic students have the nation’s largest juvenile population and court system as a live classroom.
