By UMass Law CDC Staff
The UMass Law Community Development Clinic (CDC) offers pro-bono legal services to select clients each year. At the clinic, law students, supervised by an attorney, perform legal work for clients. In exchange, students receive law school course credit and real legal experience. At the CDC, students may do legal research, draft legal briefs, write and/or review contracts, interact with clients through client meetings, conduct legal audits, prepare filings, and educate board members on their roles and responsibilities.
