Child and Youth Advocates

Mission: The mission of Child and Youth Advocates is to provide UCLA Law students with opportunities to learn about the many sub-disciplines of child and youth law, including child welfare, family law, juvenile justice, education, and crimes against children. Our activities enable students to connect with organizations providing legal services to children, learn from invited speakers and panelists, and participate in community service with local youth-serving organizations. We aim to inform members about legal issues affecting children and youth and support their endeavors in the field.
