The clinic considers client matters on a first-come, first-served basis. Potential clients may call and speak with a clinic representative, who will take down their information and relay it to the clinic’s supervising attorney.
The supervising attorney will evaluate each matter to determine whether:
The clinic has adequate resources to handle the matter;
The matter meets the clinic’s pedagogical objectives;
The matter has a good-faith basis in fact and law (or may have such a basis upon case development); and
The request for services is consistent with the clinic’s role as a law firm of last resort.
The clinic does not charge for attorney, staff, or student time. However, some administrative fees and external professional fees may apply depending on the nature of the services requested.
The clinic represents individuals, organizations, and governmental entities otherwise unable to afford legal and technical services for their environmental and community-health needs.
