Monthly Legal Clinics

The Law Library, in partnership with the Kalamazoo County Bar Association, offers free monthly legal clinics for low to moderate income persons at the Central Library, Powell Branch Library, the Eastside Neighborhood Association, and the Portage Community Center.

At these clinics you can consult one-on-one with an attorney. Clinics do not include free follow-up consultations; attorneys will not represent you in court.

Because clinic lawyers counsel their clients on many different legal concerns, your attorney may not regularly help people with your particular need. The law library cannot guarantee that your lawyer will be able to help you resolve your legal problem. There are many legal topics that are better addressed by searching for an attorney that practices in the area of law that you are interested in.

You may only attend one clinic every six months or a total of two times per year. Patrons who do not show up for their appointment will be eligible to sign-up again after six months. The clinic is intended for individuals who have not consulted with an attorney and cannot afford to do so.

Registration is required due to limited space.
Call 269-553-7920 for more information or to make an appointment.
