Barbara Hausman brings her expertise on adolescent behavior and her experience as an advocate for child abuse victims, as well as her extensive skills as a social worker to her position as executive director. Her primary research interest is in therapeutic jurisprudence.
Her commitment to making the law less hurting and more healing reveals itself in the way she devotes herself to students. As executive director, Barbara recruits stellar candidates from the best universities, raises money to fund awards given to 35 students each year enabling them to work for a summer or semester in one of the many child and family law public service agencies with which the center collaborates, helps place students in private family law firms and public service jobs, organizes several conferences each year, and mentors child and family law students.
