Professor Crystal Welch was recently invited to serve as the Guest Speaker for the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services’ Region IV South Adoption Celebration in Meridian, Miss. This event celebrates the achievement of permanency for foster and adoptive families in recognition of National Adoption Month. 
 
MC Law’s Adoption Legal Clinic is supervised and taught by Professor Welch. The clinic holds the distinct honor of serving as the attorney for the majority of foster children in Region IV South, which includes Lauderdale, Newton, Jasper, Clarke, Jones, and Wayne counties. Law student attorneys enrolled in the legal clinic are sworn into limited practice and work closely with Child Protection Services representatives, such as Adoption Area Social Work Supervisor, Heather Russell, to finalize adoptions for children in Mississippi’s foster care system to provide them the permanent homes they need and deserve.
