This year, the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts (CFCC) marks two important milestones: the 20th anniversary of the founding of CFCC and the 15th anniversary of CFCC’s Truancy Court Program. Under the leadership of Prof. Barbara Babb, the Center has been dedicated to family justice system reform.
CFCC has successfully advocated for the creation of unified family courts, the application of therapeutic jurisprudence, and the use of an ecological approach in family law matters. These accomplishments and more will be celebrated with a virtual event on Thursday, April 8 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The public is invited; RSVP here.
A number of special guests, law alumni and friends of CFCC will participate in the celebration, including Sayra Meyerhoff, J.D. ’78, M.S. ’04; Hon. Robert M. Bell, retired chief judge, Maryland Court of Appeals; former UB Law dean Laurence M. Katz; and John McCarthy, J.D. ’79, state’s attorney for Montgomery County.
Guests will share recollections and highlights of the Center’s and Truancy Court Program’s history, with several Q&A sessions. The celebration will also be an opportunity to thank and bid farewell to Babb, who is retiring from UB in July after 32 years of teaching and service.
