The proposed Legal Student internships/volunteer with community legal clinics project is designed to develop periodic legal clinics offering guidance through the legal system, professional legal advice, and assistance in completing filings and documents for members of our surrounding communities who are economically or otherwise disadvantaged. Our goal is three-fold: to provide students with hands-on legal assistant experience; and to support Amarillo College students as well as community members who do not typically have access to legal advice or aid.
A. This project target three groups:
Client Selection Process:
Clients served will be the poor and disadvantaged from within the local community.
Clients served will be Amarillo College students.
Students served will be community college students in the Legal Studies program.
Students will be selected based upon enrollment in the Legal Studies program specifically the Introduction to Law and Legal Profession at Amarillo College
Clients will be selected through established organizations such as Legal Aid of Northwest Texas.
