Vivek Sankaran Illuminates Parental Rights in Child Welfare Cases

Former Fellow Vivek Sankaran (’01), director of the Child Welfare Appellate Clinic at the University of Michigan Law School, wrote an article for The Chronicle of Social Change (“Let’s Be Honest: ‘Best Interest’ Is in the Eye of the Beholder,” Sept. 25), which was further featured in the newsletter Let Grow (“If I Let My Kids Eat Pizza for a Week, Should They Be Placed in Foster Care?,” Sept. 27). Vivek's article examined disagreement among experts and judges about the “best interest of the child” standard.
