Self-Help Clinics

​​​​​​​​​Legal Aid of North Carolina's free do-it-yourself legal clinics educate people about their rights and empower them to handle certain basic legal issues without the help of a lawyer. Participants receive all the guidance a​​nd paperwork necessary to walk out of the clinic and into the courthouse. Clinics are hosted monthly or quarterly at ​Legal Aid offices, churches, community centers and other locations throughout North Carolina. All clinics are completely free, but advance registration is required due to space limitations at most locations. Participants receive general legal information only. No specific advice is given on individual cases.
