Do You Need Legal Help?

The Villanova Clinical Program is a law office, staffed by students, at the Villanova University School of Law.  Law students, working under close faculty supervision, provide free legal representation to a limited number of individuals who cannot afford to pay a lawyer.

Referrals and appointments are required.  No walk-ins are accepted.  All cases are screened for case type and financial eligibility and are selected for their educational value to the student-lawyers.  The office operates year-round but only accepts new cases during the academic year.           

Our clinics provide representation in specific types of civil cases.
