Monthly Legal Clinics
The Law Library, in
partnership with the Kalamazoo
County Bar Association, offers free monthly legal clinics for low to
moderate income persons at the Central Library and Powell
At these clinics you can consult one-on-one with an
attorney. The clinic does not include free follow-up consultations and the
attorneys will not represent you in court.
Because clinic lawyers counsel
their clients on many different legal concerns, your attorney may not regularly
help people with your particular need. The law library cannot guarantee that
your lawyer will be able to help you resolve your legal problem. There are many
legal topics that are better addressed by searching for an attorney that
practices in the area of law that you are interested in.
You may only
attend one clinic every four months/two times per year total.
Other Clinics and Legal Advice
The Kalamazoo County Bar
Association also has Clinics at the Eastside
Neighborhood Association and Portage
Community Center. Legal

non-criminal advice. If you have a landlord/tenant matter and a court date, you
can talk to a Legal Aid attorney at the District Court on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays from 9-11. For family law matters (divorce, custody, support),
