Community Lawyering Clinic
The Community Lawyering Clinic offers students a hands-on training working with real clients in need of legal services, referrals and other forms of advocacy in Drexel's neighboring communities.
Housed at Drexel's Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, the clinic will empower students to be community lawyers, leaders, advocates, policy analysts, and organizers, while at the same time benefitting Drexel's neighbors in Mantua and Powelton Village.
The clinic will offer:
- referrals and direct representation in matters involving family, criminal, property and other legal areas affecting the community.
- financial literacy training
- pro bono programs and workshops
- research on community-wide legal issues
