“The report of the Family Law Education Project documented the need for major changes in family law education to better serve children and families in court,” said Schepard. “The FLER Web site is a tool for law schools to help modernize the teaching of family law by incorporating skills and interdisicplinary perspectives into their courses. It makes exercises in interviewing, counseling, mediation representation and courtroom advocacy available to all family law professors free of charge. It also allows them to access the latest interdisciplinary knowledge from experts outside the legal academy on subjects vital to family lawyers like mediation, domestic violence, child custody evaluations and child abuse and neglect.”
