Legal Access Clinic

Launched in Fall 2022

The Legal Access Clinic (LAC) is designed to address the access to justice gap for low- and middle-income people in and around Cincinnati while providing real life client experiences for upper-level JD and LLM students.

The Legal Access Clinic's scope of services is broad and may include:

  • estate planning and wills
  • basic divorce
  • LGBTQIA+ name and gender changes
  • immigration cases
  • evictions and habitability issues

Clients will pay substantially discounted fees for services provided, with services offered on a flat fee basis. In certain situations, LAC may deviate from its eligibility guidelines, scope of services, and fee structure to serve people who cannot afford legal representation and have been unable to obtain pro bono representation from Legal Aid or other organizations.
