LAW 3817 - Family Law Practicum

The Family Law Practicum offers students the opportunity to work in Hofstra’s Center for Separating and Divorcing Parents.  The Center is an interdisciplinary demonstration project involving the Law School and the Psychology Department in providing alternative dispute resolution, parenting plan drafting services, and short-term therapy to separating and divorcing parents with minor children.  After an intensive training in various dispute resolution methods, law students will be paired with Psy.D. students to work with the families.  Law students will develop skills in interviewing, case assessment, provision of targeted legal education, co-mediation, and drafting of parenting plans and settlement agreements.  The students will attend weekly two-hour seminars, and will be supervised in all contacts with the families receiving services.
