Community Lawyering Clinic
Thursday, January 4, 2018
12:00 AM-12:00 AM
Drexel’s Kline School of Law provides a number of services to address community-wide needs in two settings. First, the Community Lawyering Clinic takes on a wide range of legal issues of community interest during the law school's regular semesters. Cases and projects have focused on issues like employment discrimination, homeownership "tangled title," tax foreclosure, post-conviction relief, and equity in utility billing. In addition, the pro bono clinics provide local residents with legal assistance free of charge, focusing mainly on estate planning (wills, medical directives, and powers of attorney) and criminal record expungement in cooperation with Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity. See below to see what clinics and events they will be holding this month:
