Through the Community Legal Education Project, individuals learn about their legal rights and responsibilities, enabling them to avoid legal problems and understand how to resolve them when they occur.
The Legal Education Institute develops educational programs and workshops for the staff of social service providers who are often the low income population’s only link to mainstream society. This training helps them teach their clients how to avoid legal problems, identify situations where legal counsel is necessary, and know where to turn when legal help is needed.
This project is funded in part by The Sain Orr Royak De Forest Steadman Foundation.
The Small Claims Court Clinic offers low income individuals free legal advice from pro bono attorneys on how to file or defend small claims court matters. Common problems resolved by the clinic include worthless checks from employers, landlord/ tenant disputes involving money, and auto repair disputes.
This project is funded by the Legal Services Corporation and is a joint project with Dade Legal Aid Put Something Back.
