Family Law Society (FLS)

The purpose of the Family Law Society (FLS) is to familiarize students in the field of family law through guest speakers, workshops and volunteer activities, and to provide an avenue for community projects and support.

FLS sponsors a variety of guest speakers, including an attorney who practices in family law, a family court judge, and an attorney from the Department of Social Services in New York City.  The group co-sponsored a negotiation competition, co-sponsored a symposium on domestic violence, and sold white ribbons to support local shelters for domestic violence.

We’ve all sat through Thanksgiving dinner…it’s easy to see why Family Law is a growing dynamic, encompassing Adoption Law, Elderly Law, Poverty Law, Disability Law, Divorce Law, Wills & Estates, Child Welfare, and much, much more.

The Family Law Society collaborates with the Center for Family Law and Social Policy to familiarize and to introduce students into the field of Family Law.  Through luncheons with family court judges to guest speakers, lectures, seminars, workshops and volunteer activities in the Syracuse community, we provide students with the opportunity to explore the many different facets of Family Law.

We welcome all College of Law students interested in learning more and becoming involved with family law issues.  We’re saving you a seat at our table!
