Self-help clinics

Attend our free Self-Help Clinics to learn how to handle certain basic legal issues without hiring an attorney. You will receive all the guidance and 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. The clinics will provide you with general legal information and guidance only. The clinics will not provide you with specific, individual legal advice.
