Family Law Society (FLS)
As our society’s definition of family continues to expand, so does the range of issues faced by attorneys specializing in family law. The objective of FLS is to bring awareness to current and emerging legal issues in the area of family law, to provide information to students on the various career possibilities in the field of family law, and to aid students in creating lasting professional contacts. FLS achieves these objectives by hosting a variety of speakers on emerging legal topics, by providing students access to alumni who have pursued careers in the area of family law, and by creating unique opportunities for students to observe legal practice in action.
