LAW 719 - Adv Fam Law Advocacy


Advanced Family Law Advocacy This course will introduce students, in the context of Virginia substantive and procedural law, to the major practice areas typically encountered in a family practice: child abuse and neglect; domestic violence; child custody and support; and divorce. Through readings, class discussion, and simulated exercises, it explores concepts of client-centeredness and the development of case theory. Students will practice and develop necessary lawyering skills that include client interviewing, client counseling, negotiating, and litigation skills (pretrial practice, pleadings/motions drafting, and trial advocacy skills).
