A little background: The WilmerHale Legal Services Center (LSC) is a general practice law firm that provides legal counsel to over 1,200 clients annually. Clinical students can specialize in a number of different areas (including disability law, domestic violence, estate planning, family law, health law, housing, LGBT law, and predatory lending) and they provide direct services to clients under the supervision of experienced clinical instructors and fellows.
LSC is located in Jamaica Plain, which may seem far from the Harvard Law School campus, but it’s actually only 40 minutes door-to-door according to Google Maps. Not only that, the ride is pleasant and it’s always fun to visit a different neighborhood.
If you have any questions about LSC and their clinical opportunities for students, don’t hesitate to contact them – they would love to hear from you!
