LAW 3735 - Child Abuse and Neglect


This course examines a number of issues that arise in connection with cases of abuse and neglect of children by adults, and when state intervention is appropriate in such cases. Among the topics covered in detail are defining maltreatment, physical abuse and the privilege to discipline, neglect, sexual abuse and psychological maltreatment. The course also examines, albeit less comprehensively, the child protective process, reporting duties and impairment of confidentiality, investigations of maltreatment and limitations thereon, and representing children in abuse and neglect cases.

Credits: 2 or 3
