The Children’s Justice Project was founded in the spring of 2002 by three law students, Sarah Helvey, Hannah Renfro, and Notesong Srisopark Thompson. Their mission was to promote justice for children through interdisciplinary teaching, scholarship and service. Sarah, Hannah and Notesong established CJP as a dynamic student organization that contributed to the law student community by hosting speakers, sending students to national conferences, and establishing a successful fellowship program for students doing legal work on behalf of children. Since its founding, CJP has grown stronger every year.
If you are interested in working with children, family law, or just want to join the club, we welcome you to come to our meetings! Every year, we participate in a wide variety of community service activities. As a result, we have built several great relationships with local organizations and being a member of CJP is a great way to network and learn more about children’s justice.
