Representatives of Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia are Christian legal professionals and law students, called by the Word of God to do justice among the poor, inspired by the work in cities across the country by Christian Legal Society’s Legal Aid Ministry, and working together to provide legal services to low-income clients in the name of Christ.

We have started legal clinics throughout Philadelphia. Our clinics are housed by ministries who have been serving the needs of their communities for many years. Clinic clients receive a free one-hour consultation where they meet with one of our licensed volunteer clinic attorneys.

Where ongoing representation is indicated, we coordinate referrals to qualified counsel through our network of referral attorneys who accept cases on a pro bono (free) or reduced-fee basis. We seek to connect clients to local ministries and churches to address ongoing spiritual needs.
