Partnership between KU School of Law and LMH will bring free legal aid, experience
"A newly-formed partnership between the University of Kansas School of Law and Lawrence Memorial Hospital will help bring free legal assistance to patients that are unable to obtain it on their own. At the same time, the program will give law students an opportunity to help with cases and gain valuable real world experience.
The partnership is part of a national movement of hospitals that will bring free legal assistance to low-income patients and other patients that are unable to obtain legal counsel, Associate Dean of Law Lumen Mulligan said.
'What we have here is a triple win,' Mulligan said. 'We have an opportunity to provide a better healthcare experience for low-income individuals served by Lawrence Memorial, an opportunity for the hospital to do well and an opportunity for KU law students to experience a legal-medical environment.'”
