Legal Aid Committee

Legal aid is the provision of assistance to people otherwise unable to afford legal representation and access to the court system. Legal aid is regarded as central in providing access to justice by ensuring equality before the law, the right to counsel and the right to a fair trial.


WHAT IS A LEGAL AID CLINIC?


A legal clinic is a law school program which provides hands-on-legal experience to law school students and reasonable services to various clients. If you can't afford a lawyer, but still need legal representation or even have questions about your legal rights, you can get free legal aid at our Xavier’s Law School. These legal services are provided by law students who work pro bono, meaning “for the public good”, or without charge.
