Legal consultants take the lead in helping our clients work through the legal issues that they bring. Legal consultants who are not licensed attorneys will begin a consultation with clients, gather information to define their issue and then consult with our supervising attorney on a course of action. Often it is a matter of figuring out what the next step is in an existing case or dispute. Experience with the legal or immigration systems is helpful.

The legal consultant is the anchor of a team of three at the clinic; each team also has a translator and researcher when fully staffed. We divide the day into three shifts; 12-2, 2-4, and 4-7.

The best way to get into volunteering is to visit us for an hour or two during a Wednesday clinic in Southwest Detroit. After you’ve gotten a taste for the clinic setting and filled out a volunteer application, we can get you on the schedule for a future date.
