Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Christine Scartz has some history with the University of Georgia Family Justice Clinic: She helped create it. In 1994, as a law student at the UGA School of Law, Scartz participated in one of the first Public Interest Practicum classes. Students were to immerse themselves in the Athens community to find issues that could be solved with legal assistance. Scartz volunteered with Project Safe and heard story after story of domestic violence victims and their struggles to file protective orders. Today, the Family Justice Clinic, under her guidance, provides direct representation and legal support to low-income domestic violence victims.
