Gator TeamChild Juvenile Law Clinic
The Gator TeamChild Juvenile Law Clinic acts as a full-service law firm, providing free legal services to children. As Certified Legal Interns, students advocate for children in various types of proceedings, primarily in delinquency, dependency, administrative, and educational matters.
As part of their training, social workers and other mental health professionals introduce students to holistic approaches focused on resolving each child’s problem in a targeted manner.
Children are referred for Gator TeamChild services by courts, guardians ad litem, school personnel, public defenders, prosecutors, state agency case workers, and other agencies.
Gator TeamChild is funded by the Levin College of Law and individual contributions from alumni and friends. The Jessie Ball DuPont Fund provided a generous contribution to establish the program during it’s inception.
