Volunteer attorneys act as legal consultants in our clinics helping clients work through the legal issues they bring.

Attorneys do provide real legal advice or services but they do not necessarily take on clients for representation outside the clinics.

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.
