COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW CLINIC
(LAWJ-5001) - 2 UNITS
At C-LAW students learn the fundamentals of family law (two days) and then get trained in the collaborative law process by the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association (LACFLA) (three days). After this five day training (pre-semester), students work closely with Professor Kevin Chroman and a collaborative law team to advocate for clients in collaborative divorce mediation provided by the C-MAC Clinic. The collaborative team includes a lead attorney and other professionals in the mental health and financial arenas. The C-LAW clinic is a project of The CCR that is working in conjunction with LACFLA to provide these services. C-LAW's goal is to provide collaborative family law divorce services for under-represented families in Los Angeles County provided by the Loyola Center for Conflict Resolution's Conciliation & Mediation Assistance Clinic (C-MAC). The CCR's process for divorcing families may include a combination of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. Service is generally provided in this two unit clinic on Fridays during the semester.
