About

The Justice & Diversity Center (JDC) advises low-income clients facing debt collection lawsuits at a free clinic on Wednesdays twice a month from 6:00-9:00 pm. Volunteer attorneys take our free 3-hour CLE training to learn collection defense law and assist consumers who have been sued by creditors. Volunteering at our clinic is an excellent way to help low-income people deeply impacted by the current economic crisis while learning a new area of law and developing litigation skills, all with a supervising attorney’s support. Volunteers individually counsel clients and possibly draft in pro per litigation documents. Other opportunities include negotiating on behalf of clients and representing them at hearings or even trial.
