Community Lawyering Clinic
Students work closely with physicians, social workers, community planners, community activists, and nonprofits at various sites across Albuquerque.
MLAC law students conduct intakes onsite at UNM health clinics in a low-income neighborhood of Albuquerque. Students train healthcare providers to identify and better address legal issues that affect their patients and provide direct legal representation in and out of court to children, caregivers, and families to address issues such as housing, education, domestic violence, and immigration status. Students represent clients in Family Court, Children’s Court (juvenile delinquency), and other venues as necessary.
