The University of Alabama School of Law has opened a foreclosure clinic to offer free legal assistance to clients in seven nearby counties. The clinic will be staffed by current law students and supervised by a full-time lawyer and a part-time supervising lawyer, according to a UA press release. The clinic formally opened August 19th. Hugh Lee, director of the school’s Foreclosure Relief Clinic and the Elder Law Clinic, said in a news release:
Because foreclosure is generally a non-judicial process, consumers often do not understand how a lawyer can help resolve their situation. Furthermore, because attorney’s fees are not generally available to most consumers facing foreclosure due to a financial crisis, few can afford counsel to help them. Thus, even those who try to seek counsel often go without help.
The foreclosure clinic will be one of eight free legal assistance clinics currently being offered by the School of Law. The clinics are Capital Defense, Community Development, Criminal Defense, Mediation Law, Domestic Violence, Elder Law, Civil Law, and Foreclosure. The clinics provide a service to folks who badly need help and give them access to the judicial system. The law school and all involved with these projects should be commended.
