Conference participants will be divided into “cluster groups” based on their graduation date from law school. The groups are designed to allow conference participants to reflect on the plenary speakers’ talks and the morning panels while considering the future of child and family advocacy education and, more broadly, clinical legal education at Columbia Law School.
Graduation Year Cluster Discussion Groups
Moderators from each cluster group will give a short summary of their discussion
