Civil Litigation Clinic

Need Assistance with Civil Legal Matters?

We do not charge our clients for our legal representation. Certified limited practice student attorneys will represent you in your civil matter. We are limited to the scope of practice belwo and cannot assist with limited service such as answering basic questions or paperwork completion.

Submitting an application and materials for evaluation does not mean we represent you as a client and only that we are evaluating your matter for possible assistance.  We have limited space for new cases each semester.
