About Us

 

 


 

 

Established in 1998 as the National Center for Adoption Law & Policy, the Family and Youth Law Center at Capital University Law School has worked tirelessly for more than two decades in the areas of child welfare, adoption, and juvenile justice systems to support positive outcomes for children, youth, and families. In recent years, the landscape in which FYLaw operates has changed dramatically, including multiple additional service providers, funding opportunities rerouting to these additional providers, and staffing.  All these challenges have been exacerbated by the COVID 19 pandemic.

For these and other reasons, Capital University Law School has determined to suspend FYLaw’s operations effective August 1, 2022. The Law School intends to use this opportunity to explore and consider the future of FYLaw as part of the Law School’s overall efforts to evolve in a manner that allows it to continue delivering the best legal education possible in a 21st Century, post-pandemic world. 
 

Thank you for all your support over the years. We truly appreciate it!
