Mission Statement:
The Youth Advocacy Law Association is a group for Fordham Law students interested in exploring careers that are committed to advocating for children and juveniles involved in the Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice, and Public Education systems.  YouthLaw seeks to increase understanding of legal practice on behalf of young people, and to raise awareness of important policies and issues affecting youth, especially youth from underserved communities.  YouthLaw collaborates with leaders in the field, organizes discussions and networking, and encourages academic and service-oriented youth advocacy.
