Who are we?

PALS is an advocacy, networking, and support group for students who care for dependents. We strive to provide a casual forum for parent support, sponsor family-friendly events, help students find resources they need while attending law school, and answer questions they have that are unique to students caring for family.    

Who is invited to join?

EVERYONE!! Parents, caretakers, soon to be parents, and supporters/ friends of our organization.

Possible Activities:

  • Family Game Night
  • Networking Lunch
  • Trip to Port Discovery, Science Museum, or Art Museum
  • Toy Exchange

Other needs we strive to address:

  • On-Site childcare for UMB-related events
  • "It Takes a Village" Co-operative Study Groups

Need a lactation room? The law school has two lactation rooms - one on the 4th flr. of the law library and one on the 2nd flr. near the classrooms which is only available to law students. Reach out to the Student Affairs Office for information on how to access either or both locations.
