The University of Richmond law school debuted its outreach program in downtown Richmond yesterday.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, UR Downtown will offer three programs that involve UR law students:
- The Richmond Families Initiative will study ways to enhance programs run by local agencies to support families.
- The Harry L. Carrico Center for Pro Bono Service will provide legal services to low-income victims of domestic violence seeking protective orders or those seeking no-fault divorces.
- The Family Law Clinic will be a collaboration of UR law students and VCU graduate students in social work and psychology.
The 5,000-square-foot space is housed on the first floor of the former Franklin Federal Savings & Loan building at 626 E. Broad St., near the new federal courthouse.
