Legal Services Clinic

Students, supervised by an experienced legal services attorney, spend one semester providing legal services to indigent clients living in the South Coast area. The Clinic is located in the Fall River office of South Coastal Counties Legal Services, Inc., a legal services organization for the region. Cases range from family law to landlord-tenant law to government benefits. Clinic students attend weekly class seminars. Students have prime responsibility for handling their clients’ cases, including court room experience as lead counsel, and are expected to average 20 hours each week in their clinic work. Student reflection on their direct representation work, including ethical concerns, is part of the clinical experience.
