Need Legal Assistance?

The Office of Clinical Legal Education provides representation to individuals and groups in Syracuse and neighboring communities who cannot afford private attorneys or who cannot obtain other available legal assistance.

We regret that we cannot accommodate walk-ins.

All criminal cases are assigned to our Clinic by the court and are not open for intakes through other referrals. Individuals in need of bankruptcy assistance should contact Legal Aid of Mid-New York at 877.777.6152 for eligibility screening.
