About this course
The J.D./M.S. in Marriage & Family Counseling fills a significant and largely unrecognized gap in legal education. Marriage and family counseling issues are inherent in an array of matters handled by family law practitioners. To optimize the client's well being in such cases, the attorney must see the client through the eyes of a trained therapist.
Since most family law clients are in a state of emotional upheaval, attorneys with a formal background in areas such as the theory and practice of counseling couples, transitions in family life, and multicultural counseling will be better prepared to work closely with them and to recognize and address their legal and emotional needs.
