Family Law Professors Launch Innovative Program

Law students and social work students engaged in a cross-disciplinary trial skills program led by faculty from Hofstra Law and Hunter College School of Social Work. On October 18 at Hunter’s School of Social Work, Hofstra Law students played the role of attorneys in a child abuse case, and Hunter students acted as expert social worker witnesses, in a full-day trial preparation workshop.

The project, part of the Family Law (with Skills) Course taught by Professors Andrew Schepard and J. Herbie DiFonzo, is designed to teach the skills of case theory development, witness preparation and witness examination that lawyers and social workers must use in real cases.

Theo Liebmann, clinical professor of law and attorney-in-charge at the Hofstra Child Advocacy Clinic, designed the course with experts from around New York and the country.
