Family and Children’s Law Placements
The Family and Children’s Law Placements course is offered each term, giving upper-year students invaluable insight and experience in the practice of family and children’s law, and the roles and responsibilities of lawyers and other professionals in the legal system. Professor Nicholas Bala coordinates placements and leads seminars for students enrolled in the course. Students have a choice of being placed with family law practitioners, the Children’s Aid Society, Family Court Duty Counsel, the Frontenac Youth Diversion Program and the Victim Witness Program. Students earn academic credit while they learn about the complex legal, ethical and moral decisions involved in the practice of family law.
