Client Services

As part of the UW School of Law’s commitment to public service and access to justice efforts, we provide free legal representation to under-represented clients.  Many clinics can only take clients through referral from other organizations due to limited resources.

These clinics take cases from the public without referral:

  • Entrepreneurial Law Clinic: The ELC teams law and MBA students with pro bono attorneys expert in business law.  Teams provide legal advice to low-income microentrepreneurs, entrepreneurs in economically distressed communities, and pre-funded high-tech start ups.
  • Federal Tax Clinic: The clinic represents taxpayers who have ongoing disputes with the Internal Revenue Service.  Taxpayers who earn from $26,000 per year (for single taxpayers) to $62,000 per year (for a family of five) can receive representation from the clinic free of charge.
  • Mediation Clinic: The Mediation Clinic helps parties settle disputes without going to court.

Check the other clinics' client pages for information about the types of cases and referrals they take:

Working with the law students made a huge difference. I wasn't afraid at the hearing. I was worried about losing my apartment but getting my benefits meant I didn't have to
