This clinic offers a comprehensive set of legal services focused on assisting low income individuals in their interaction with the legal system.
Students at the clinic explore the facets of homelessness and the role of legal advocacy in addressing its causes and alleviating its consequences. Students have the opportunity to handle real clients and real cases ranging from family law, domestic violence, and general civil practice. The majority of our clients come from one on one intake meetings with students at two (2) of the local homeless shelters. The students conduct interviews, under the supervision of the staff attorney, every week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Students also conduct in-house intake of individuals who contact the clinic seeking assistance.
