Law clinic celebrates 10th year of child advocacy fellowships

The Child Advocacy Law Clinic (CALC), the oldest clinic of its kind in the country, recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Bergstrom Child Welfare Law Summer Fellowship program.

The program is designed to equip people committed to child welfare advocacy with the tools to cope with today's complex issues. Thirty fellows comprising the class of 2004 gathered at the Law School last month. This year's class included four
U-M law students.

The program provides three days of intensive interdisciplinary training in child welfare law and related issues and prepares fellows for summer internships with child advocacy agencies throughout the country.

"Child advocacy work is no way to get rich, at least not in money," says Donald Duquette, clinical professor of law and director of CALC.

Support for the fellowship program is supplied by an endowment from the Bergstrom Foundation in honor of the late Henry Bergstrom, a 1935 Law School graduate.
