Legal Aid Clinic

union-rescue-mission

I look forward to Thursday mornings in particular this semester.  Beginning today, I plan to spend Thursdays working with our students and faculty in our Legal Aid Clinic at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row.  Professor Brittany Stringfellow-Otey supervises the clinic, and I look forward to learning from her while working alongside our law students.

Here is a description of the Legal Aid Clinic:

The Pepperdine Legal Aid Clinic provides direct legal services to homeless individuals in downtown Los Angeles. In the clinic, housed in the Union Rescue Mission, students receive training and provide legal assistance in a variety of civil matters, including family law, income tax, consumer law, benefit controversies and post-conviction reentry.   With intensive instruction and guidance, students perform live client interviewing and counseling, legal research, motion preparation, and client representation in court. In addition, the clinic presents legal education programs to various social service organizations and community groups.
