For Potential Clients
The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs is an academic office and does not provide legal services or advice to members of the public. We do not have practicing attorneys on staff and cannot match members of the public who are seeking legal help with a student or professor.
If you are seeking legal assistance, please do not call the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs. We encourage you to instead work through a local organization that may provide what you need. Please visit LawHelp.org for a more complete, state-by-state list of legal service organizations.
