DC Law Students in Court Program

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 6, 2010, 2:53 AM

Description

The DC Law Students in Court Program was created to: provide legal representation and assistance to low income persons in DC who cannot afford attorneys, and to provide third-year law students with a high quality clinical education experience in which to learn lawyering and litigation skills.

A third part of our mission is to assist the D.C. Superior Court system where low income persons without counsel are at a severe disadvantage in the legal system. And lastly, our program works to enlarge the number of attorneys to help the disadvantated by providing training and mentoring in the areas of our expertise: housing, landlord and tenant and criminal law.

The D.C. Law Students in Court Program is a non-profit legal education/legal services program associated with five major District of Columbia law schools, American, Catholic, Howard, Georgetown and George Washington. It has provided free legal services to low-income clients with cases arising in D.C. courts and agencies, and provided third-year law students with a high quality introduction to the skills of lawyering and advocacy for nearly 40 years. The program represents and/or assists approximately 6,000 people each year.
