CFCC Student Fellows Program
The CFCC Student Fellows Program I and Program II provide law students with a unique opportunity to experience cutting-edge family law and family justice system reform. CFCC Student Fellows engage in CFCC projects that:
- Design innovative approaches to family law and family justice system reform issues
- Involve them in CFCC's Truancy Court Program
- Develop contacts for future employment
The Cheryl Lynn Hepfer Family Law Award, endowed by the Maryland Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and established through CFCC, awards $1,000 to a student who 1) completes and excels in the CFCC Student Fellows Program I and II; 2) completes and excels in the core Family Law course; and 3) participates as a Student Attorney in either the Family Law Clinic or the Mediation Clinic for Families. The award honors Cheryl Lynn Hepfer, a prominent Maryland attorney, and is bestowed at the Annual Law School Awards Ceremony.
