Abstract:     
This essay explores the implications of Troxel for children at risk of foster care placement. It highlights the potential roles of University-Based Interdisciplinary Children's Centers (UBICC) in advocating for children's needs and in influencing the courts and legislatures to use a developmentally-informed and child-centered perspective when evaluating laws and making public policy. The authors describe the use of friend of the court briefs as a vehicle for presenting courts with interdisciplinary perspectives on issues of importance to children.
