The Daily Report Highlights AJMLS Externship Program


Recently The Daily Report highlighted Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School’s students for their work with DeKalb County child support cases. Through John Marshall’s Externships Program, students are going to help pro se plaintiffs in contested child support cases through a program started by a DeKalb County judge and family lawyer.The students will assist divorcing parents with a lengthy worksheet reporting income and expenses.

DeKalb Superior Court Judge Mark Anthony Scott and Rebecca Crumrine, a partner at family law firm Hedgepeth, Heredia, Crumrine & Morrison, have organized an externship with AJMLS, where Crumrine is an adjunct professor, training third-year law students to help pro se litigants in Scott’s courtroom fill out the worksheet. They hope the pilot program will spread to other courtrooms.

AJMLS is extremely proud of our students and our phenomenal Externship Program, which allows students to gain real-world experience while in school.
