The committee coordinates bar association volunteers at organizations like Shepherd's Table and Special Olympics.
The Family Law Section provides educational and networking events for family law practitioners; tracks family law related legislation; supports the Commission for Women's divorce seminars for the public and organizes family law pro bono efforts.
