Scholars and Practitioners in Residence

The Children and Family Law Center Scholar in Residence program brings nationally known family law scholars to Washburn Law and the University community. Scholars may come from law or related fields. During their time in residence at Washburn Law, scholars give public lectures, conduct faculty workshops, visit family law classes and meet with members of the Center's student-run Family Law Student Society.
