The KU School of Law Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) is a collaboration between the KU School of Law and two health systems: The University of Kansas Health System at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, and LMH Health in Lawrence. Under the supervision of experienced MLP attorneys, students assist in providing free transactional legal assistance to low-income patients and their families.
Representation is focused on the following “I-HELP” priority areas in which legal services can have the greatest impact on the health of patients:
- Income supports
- Housing and utilities
- Education and employment
- Legal status (immigration)
- Personal and family stability
If you are a patient at one of our medical partner’s facilities, you can ask your provider about how to access services from the Medical-Legal Partnership.
