FAQ: How do I Apply to Become a Client with the Community Development Clinic?

By CDC Staff

The Community Development Clinic (CDC) accepts applications from those interested in receiving pro bono (no cost) legal services on a rolling basis. In order to apply to be a client at the CDC, please complete the below application and submit it and the required attachments at your earliest convenience.

The application asks for your information, as well as information about your business. It asks questions about your organization background and the services you provide. Finally, it asks for the reason you are applying to receive services with the clinic. Once we receive your application, we will review it and follow-up about whether or not we’ll be able to further pursue your application.

Unfortunately, the CDC cannot accommodate every applicant and we receive more requests for services than we are able to accept. We consider a range of factors when deciding whether to accept a client, including resources and capacity and learning opportunities for students.

While we cannot guarantee that your application will be successful, we do find it helpful when applicants are as informative as possible in regards to the questions asked on the application.

Este aplicativo também está disponível em português.

You may submit your completed application by:
