In 1981, in response to an identified community need, Common Ground implemented a free Legal Clinic, utilizing volunteer attorneys to provide consultations to persons needing legal assistance and referral services. The Legal Clinic operates from 6:00pm - 7:30pm each Tuesday (except for holidays) at Common Ground's administrative office and 11:00am - 12:30pm each Thursday (except for holidays) at the Oakland County Law Library.
