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.
