The Children’s Advocacy and Family Law Society at the Charleston School of Law was established to improve the lives of children by serving as advocates relating to abuse, neglect, juvenile justice, and family law. The society works closely with local agencies and legal professionals to facilitate the participation of Charleston School of Law students on behalf of children and youth in the community and to provide a forum for students interested in Family Law to become involved with professionals in the field. It is the goal of the Children’s Advocacy and Family Law Society to produce members who are ready to enter the legal profession as able and active child advocates.
