|AALS Names Lerner Bellow Scholar for his Research on Child Neglect
1 - 2 - 3
The Association of American Law Schools (AALS)
Committee of Lawyering in the Public Interest named Alan
Lerner a Bellow Scholar last April for his research project on
child neglect cases. The Bellow Scholars Award identifies and
honors projects that reflect the social justice ideals of activist
lawyer Gary Bellow.
Lerner, a practice professor of law who teaches in the Interdisciplinary
Child Advocacy Clinic, aims to identify the red flags
that can alert courts to cases that require more than a standard
intervention. A standard approach to those cases can slow
down their resolution, which means that the child might live in
an unsafe situation, or remain in foster care for a longer period
of time than might be necessary.
