Student Legal Resources

Welcome to the Student Legal Resources page. The Croak Community Legal Clinic (CCLC) provides legal information and resources to students and to the community who are representing themselves. CCLC does not take cases for full representation or represent students in court.  ​Students who are in need of legal assistance should visit the Online Self-Help Center for resources and referrals.  There are legal and educational resources that helps DePaul students better represent themselves in legal situations and provide general referrals on a wide variety of legal topics. CCLC focuses on educating students and the community  on the law and enabling them to make informed choices.

There will be workshops that students and the community can attend throughout the school year. Each semester of the clinic will focus on different areas of the law.  Each Fall will provide training on an area of civil law and each Spring will provide training on an area of criminal law.
