Students will have the opportunity to learn from experienced family law practitioners; observe and participate in family law legislation and policy formulation; attend and observe legislative committee and floor sessions; research legislation and policy issues; and, where possible, assist in drafting family law legislation.

Students will work with the MSBA Family Law Section and family law practitioners, as appropriate, and they will attend scheduled class meetings.
