Last Chance to Apply for New Research Fellowship

The Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville seeks a second- or third-year law student to conduct an analysis/comparison of existing local court rules related to family matters across the state.  The local rules in some jurisdictions are available online; others must be obtained from the local courts.  The analysis will compare rules in each section of practice (DNA, custody/visitation, domestic violence, etc.) with each other and with new unified family court rules of procedure and practice that have been submitted to the Supreme Court of Kentucky for approval. 

Funding for 400 hours at $10/hour, to be completed by 3/31/12, has been approved.  Similar funding may be available the subsequent year to do a similar analysis of new local rules which jurisdictions will revise to conform to the new unified family court rules.
