Baylor Law School announced it will open a new family law clinic beginning in fall 2024. The clinic aims to provide vital support to pro se litigants in navigating the complexities of family law cases, focusing on divorce and matters affecting parent-child relationships, according to a press release.

Created with financial assistance from the Texas Bar Foundation, or TBF, the clinic will address the increasing trend of self-representation among divorce litigants, especially those facing literacy and language barriers. The family law clinic will join Baylor Law’s six other clinics—the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic, Estate Planning Clinics, Immigration Clinic, Intellectual Property Law Clinic, Trial Advocacy Clinic, and Veterans Clinics—that promote the school’s mission of service and access to justice.
