Through the Legal Aid Clinic, KU law student interns provide legal assistance for low-income clients in Lawrence Municipal Court and Douglas County District Court. The clinic's caseload is divided into three general areas:
- a civil practice that includes divorce, paternity, protection from abuse, child support, landlord and tenant matters and consumer matters;
- a criminal practice for adults who are charged with crimes in Lawrence Municipal Court; and
- a criminal practice for juveniles who are charged with crimes in Douglas County District Court.
The clinic works with legal aid organizations and the local courts to identify clients eligible for student representation. To determine whether the Legal Aid Clinic can assist you, please call 785-864-5564.
