Christian Legal Aid for the District of Columbia (“CLADC”) Pro Bono Project Training Session

12:00PM - 01:00PM Tenley Campus - Yuma Y404 Seminar Room

 Christian Legal Aid for the District of Columbia (“CLADC”) exists to provide free or reduced-cost legal services to low-income individuals and families from a faith-based perspective. Utilizing a network of volunteer attorneys, paralegals and law students, CLADC organizes monthly legal clinics at various locations around DC.  CLADC hosts three legal clinics each month (two in Northwest DC, including two just a block away from Georgetown Law, and one in Anacostia). The clinics offer an opportunity for legal professionals and law students to help DC's poor and homeless community. Volunteers meet with clients and help attorneys provide free legal advice, brief services, and occasionally representation. Legal issues that may be addressed include landlord/tenant law; debt/bankruptcy/foreclosure; family law; domestic violence; expungement of criminal records; social security insurance; and identification issues. Students who want to participate in this project must be trained. Join us for pizza and a training hosted by CLADC staff at WCL and learn more about how to get involved! RSVP on MyWCL.
