HeLP Legal Services Clinic

The HeLP Legal Services Clinic is an in-house, live-client clinic located at Georgia State University’s College of Law. The Clinic is an integral part of HeLP and provides a supportive learning environment for law students to develop practical lawyering skills in substantive legal fields related to the health and well-being of low-income children and their families. Cases referred to HeLP for legal representation and appropriate for student assignment are assigned to law students enrolled in the Clinic. The Clinic exposes students to areas of law related to children, families, poverty, and social welfare.

Students enroll in the Clinic for course credit. In HeLP Clinic I, students develop skills such as interviewing, counseling, negotiation, legal research, writing, drafting, and case management. HeLP Clinic II permits students to handle more advanced aspects of cases.
