Adoption Legal Clinic

The MC Law Adoption Legal Clinic is working with the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) to help provide permanent homes for children in foster care. Law students enrolled in the Adoption Legal Clinic work with prospective adoptive families through every phase of finalizing the adoption of their child, including drafting the pleadings, liaising with the social workers and adoption workers, scheduling court hearings with court administrators, appearing at adoption hearings, and obtaining the new birth certificate for the child.
