Justice for Needs of Children: Defining Public and Private Responsibilities
Drawing on the substantive expertise and interests of the law faculty, the Justice for Children Project began as a joint venture of the Moritz College of Law and its Center for Socio-Legal Studies (now known as the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies.
In November 1995, the Moritz College of Law and the Center, under the rubric of the Project, sponsored its first annual conference. Entitled Justice for Needs of Children: Defining Public and Private Responsibilities, the conference attracted lawyers, scholars, and researchers from a number of different disciplines.
The inter-disciplinary papers represented focused on the public role in the private family and were published in volume 57 of The Ohio State University Law Journal in 1996.
