Limited Assistance Representation (LAR)

Civil Appeals Clinic

If you have questions about how to appeal a judgment or decision, the Civil Appeals Clinic may be able to help. At the Clinic, free attorneys can explain the process for appealing a judgment or decision and answer questions about it.  The Clinic is run by the Volunteer Lawyers Project and held at the Appeals Court Clerk’s Office on Wednesdays between 12:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Please be advised that the Civil Appeals Clinic is staffed by volunteer attorneys and is limited to low-income persons who qualify for services. You will be screened for income, assets, and case type, among other things, before a volunteer attorney can meet with you.  For more information about the screening process, please contact info@vlpnet.org. Learn more about the Civil Appeals Clinic
