Prospective Client Information

Please note that the Legal Clinics do not provide legal counsel or advice to walk-in clients. We are not able to answer legal questions or provide legal advice over the phone, via email, or in-person. The vast majority of the clients we serve at the DePaul Legal Clinics are referred directly to our office through legal aid agencies, our community partners, or the courts. We do not perform intakes for new clients except as stated below.

The Business Law Clinic only represents corporate entities. If you are an entrepreneur or business seeking legal services from the Business Law Clinic, you can only request legal assistance from the Business Clinic by emailing your request, including a description of your legal needs and contact information, to DePaulLegalClinic@depaul.edu

Current DePaul students seeking help for DACA-related issues can email our Asylum & Immigration Law Clinics.

Legal Resources for DePaul Alumni

Current DePaul University students have access to free legal advice from Croak Student Legal Services. Croak Student Legal Services provides free and confidential legal advice to DePaul students on a wide range of common legal issues, including landlord disputes, misdemeanor criminal offenses and more. While Croak cannot represent you in court, it offers to help you understand your rights and obligations, provide general recommendations and help you find useful resources, including referrals to licensed, practicing attorneys with experience related to your case.

DePaul students seeking help for DACA-related issues can email our Asylum & Immigration Law Clinic.

Legal Resources for DePaul Alumni

We recommend utilizing the DePaul University Alumni Directory if you are looking for a DePaul Law alumnus to represent you or provide you with legal advice. Please note these are paid legal services. The DePaul Legal Clinics do not maintain a list of private attorney referrals and we generally cannot provide assistance or advice to alumni who contact our office.
