Trivia Night to benefit School of Law’s Child and Family Services Clinic

The UMKC Family Law Society will host its second annual Trivia Night at 6 p.m. on Feb. 10 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (11 E. 40th St.).

The event costs $200 for a table of eight, with proceeds benefiting the UMKC Child and Family Services Clinic.

A silent auction and raffle will raise additional money. Door prizes will also be given out.

“Contestants do not need to have a legal background to attend,” according to a UMKC press release. “Questions are not specific to the legal community, but will cover a wide range of pop culture.”

Established in 2001, the Clinic has worked with more than 600 children while giving law students experience working with clients. Students in the clinic work under faculty, teaming up with area attorneys and child welfare agencies to work in areas of child probation, legal guardianship, adoption, paternity, child custody, support and visitation, divorce and modifications.”

Students in the Clinic learn about Missouri’s child protection system and the juvenile court through hands-on experience. Students receive additional training from experts in domestic violence, drug testing and welfare programs.

In April, the Clinic will partner with area agencies to present programs in its annual recognition of Child Abuse Awareness Month.

Contestants may RSVP for the Trivia Night by emailing umkcfamilylaw@umkc.edu or contacting Laura Byerley at 816-235-1592 or byerleyl@umkc.edu.
