Main Street Law Clinic
Students in our Main Street Law Clinic represent clients who could not otherwise afford a lawyer in a wide variety of cases, both litigation (state and federal courts) and nonlitigation. These include:
- Criminal misdemeanors
- Domestic relations (including divorce, child custody and support, adoption, and domestic violence protection)
- Consumer matters
This practice resembles cases in which the majority of Idaho lawyers participate. Most cases are small enough that they can be completed in the time that a student is involved in the clinic program. A few are more complex, and have resulted in student participation in trials lasting a week or more.
