Vivek Sankaran Describes Support Role in Family Advocacy Work

Former Fellow Vivek Sankaran (’01), the director of the Child Advocacy Law Clinic and the Child Welfare Appellate Clinic at the University of Michigan Law School, wrote a column for The Chronicle of Social Change about his work representing parents in child protection cases (“Beyond Counsel: What Lawyers Can Mean to Parents,” Jan. 2). “Providing compassion and hope to families ... is as important as any motion I might file or any question I might ask in a courtroom,” Sankaran said.
