William Mitchell College of Law students and alumni are offering free legal assistance to people who are planning to represent themselves in court.

The William Mitchell Self-Help Clinic is open from 2 to 4 pm Saturdays starting Sept. 10 through Nov. 19 and Jan. 15 through April 14 in the law school’s library (875 Summit Ave., St. Paul, Minn.).

Students and alumni will be available to provide assistance with:

  • filing for uncontested divorces
  • child modifications
  • issues related to parenting time
  • expungements of evictions
  • criminal expungements.

Attendees will have the opportunity to consult with an attorney, who can answer questions about the legal process, required forms, and provide advice on how to obtain the best possible legal results.

William Mitchell students and legal librarians will help attendees fill out required paperwork, research legal issues, connect with legal resources, and answer general questions. Anyone who wishes to use the clinics services is asked to bring any documents related to their legal issues.

The clinic was established by William Mitchell students to provide a community service—according to representatives with the Hennepin County Law Library, more people are representing themselves in court than in previous years.
