Training and Education

CLC recognizes that providing training and education is crucial to successful advocacy work at the individual and systemic levels. We work towards creating a better educated community through publications and presentations through a variety of mediums, as well as training and education of law students and other college students.

The Children’s Law Center works with law students from Salmon P. Chase College of Law, the University of Kentucky Law School, and the University of Cincinnati Law School on fellowships and externships. Additionally, social work and criminal justice students from Northern Kentucky University, University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky, and Xavier University, along with students from various universities across the nation, have volunteered or completed internships through the Center. Social work students enhance CLC work in a variety of ways, from direct client assistance to coordinate community organizing and education for large scale legislative and policy reform.

Staff and students have produced numerous publications around issues involving the rights of children which are distributed free to judges, attorneys and other professionals working with youth.
