According to a new paper co-authored by Michigan Law Professor Vivek Sankaran, courts terminate the rights of parents far too often, causing needless trauma for families. In this faculty Q&A, Vivek Sankaran, a Clinical Law Professor at the University of Michigan School of Law, provides insights on matters concerning Termination of Parental Rights (TPR). The faculty expert explores the reasons behind the increased frequency and ease of Termination of Parental Rights (TPR), the over-application of TPR, the negative outcomes for families and society, and how children of color are disproportionately affected by TPR.
