The Clark County Legal Self-Help Center, located within the Clark County Courthouse in Jeffersonville, IN, is seeking 2L and 3L law students to perform volunteer pro bono work during the spring semester and during the summer.
The Center is open twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Its goal is to help local residents in navigating the often confusing court system by providing preliminary information, guidance, and referrals to walk-in clients. The Center also provides a computer system to enable qualified clients to prepare and print certain court documents for filing with the court clerk's office. Most recently, volunteer lawyers of the area responded to the March 2012 tornados and the facility was positively discussed in news and magazine stories. A complete description of the project is attached.
Local attorneys staff the Center, but law students are also needed to make initial assessments of client issues and to assist the on-duty attorney in providing information about the legal process to clients. Students may also help clients in using the computer system to fill out court documents. Students are welcome and encouraged to volunteer. Hours worked at the Center will count towards the public service requirement. If interested, please contact Jina Scinta at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
