Pro Bono Initiative: Free Brief Advice Legal Clinics

The purpose of our Free Brief Advice Legal Clinics is to provide brief one-on-one instruction & assistance to low-income Utahns who cannot afford legal representation. Legal volunteers cannot file for you or appear in court on your behalf. The Free Brief Advice Legal Clinics are open to any low-income Utahn on a first-come first-serve basis. Please be aware we do not make appointments. All Free Brief Advice Legal Clinics are staffed by volunteer law students and volunteer on-site supervising attorneys.  Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the closing time at each clinic or you will not be seen and will have to attend the next clinic.
