Re-launch of The Residence Life Mediation Program (RLMP) for Samford students has a new wedsite. A homepage was established for the RLMP. The homepage provides mediation forms, directions for both staff and students, and downloadable posters and flyers for use by different University offices/groups to hang across campus. The two main goals of the re-launch are to make all staff members, faculty members, RAs and students more aware of the program and make it more utilized. A campus wide announcement is expected at the beginning of next academic term.

Family Court Paternity Docket Pilot Project
The Community Mediation Center/Public Interest Project is proud to announce a new opportunity for students to gain practical legal experience and address a growing need in our community. The Family Court Paternity Docket Pilot Project will utilize law student volunteers to aid in the administration of the paternity and support docket at the Birmingham location of Jefferson County Family Court. The docket is held on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Fridays of every month at the courthouse. Volunteers will gather information from plaintiffs so court officials can execute proper service of process; draft orders for paternity testing and support; and work with DHR and court officials to streamline the paternity and support docket for family court judges. One hour of directed research credit is available for students meeting certain requirements. If you would like to volunteer or have more questions, please stop by Room 215 and talk with Tim Cook or Professor Adams.
