The LAMP clinic and what we do

While LAMP stands for Legal Assistance to Minnesota Prisoners, we like to think of it more metaphorically. The LAMP Clinic serves as a beacon in the dark world of those incarcerated.

The LAMP clinic provides help with all types of legal matters to inmates. LAMP cases range from lawsuits to stop inmate mistreatment to helping an inmate with a  divorce to drafting a will.

LAMP does not handle appeals for inmates to contest their convictions.
