DETAILS

Through their clinics and pro bono programs, law schools help to bridge the gap in legal assistance by arranging for students and faculty to provide free legal counsel and representation on a range of subjects including special education, Social Security, elder law, domestic violence, and consumer issues.

They also staff innocence projects, work for clemency, and offer support for veterans in need of earned benefits and legal assistance.
