Law Firm Program: Family Law (7080)

This course will give the students the opportunity to take a divorce from complaint to judgment and then work on post-judgment issues. Students will assume the role of an associate assisting the family law partner in a large law firm. Issues covered will include asset discovery and valuation, child custody and support, spousal support, parenting time issues, paternity and post-judgment issues. Students will draft memos, complaints, discovery documents, motions, orders and judgment. Quizzes and/or writing assignments will be done weekly.

There are no prerequisite but the professor recommends that the students will achieve more from the class if the general Family Law Course is taken prior.
