UM Law to Host Free Family Law Clinic

A free family law legal clinic, sponsored by the UM Law School’s Pro Bono Initiative and the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyer’s Project, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, October 6 at the University of Mississippi School of Law in Oxford. Attorneys and law students will provide free legal advice and assist with drafting complaints for guardianship, divorce, custody and visitation, and child support.

“The Pro Bono Initiative of the University of Mississippi School of Law is pleased to host the clinic to provide assistance to individuals with civil legal needs,” said Tiffany Graves, interim director of the Pro Bono Initiative. “We recognize that programs like this offer the only opportunity for those with limited resources to meet with attorneys and get their legal matters resolved.”

The clinic not only helps those in need of legal assistance, but it also gives law students experience as well as the opportunity to give back to the community.

Appointments must be made for this service. Eligible parties can contact Graves at 601-882-5001 to make an appointment.
