The College Legal Clinic is committed to serving the students, faculty and staff of CSUSB with quality legal services.
We have pledged to provide complete confidentiality regarding our clients' cases and we strive to maintain a friendly and professional atmosphere for our clients.
The College Legal Clinic (CLC) is a consultation and referral service made up of a panel of 27 attorneys specializing in various areas of law such as: family, juvenile, guardianship, criminal, civil appellate, civil litigation, insurance, personal injury, labor, medical, probate, real estate, business, collections, bankruptcy, landlord/tenant, immigration, social security and employment.
During the academic quarter, a different attorney hosts an attorney consult night every week in the evenings from approximately 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM The attorney consult nights are consultation sessions that allow the attorney and the client to discuss legal issues and procedures. The attorneys can only explain, evaluate and comment on the information presented by the client.
Attorneys are guests who come to the CLC as volunteers. They can answer any questions regarding the subject of interest. They cannot fill out any paperwork or sign anything and they do not provide representation. If the client wishes to hire the attorney's services, that will be out of the scope of the College Legal Clinic.
