Description:

How would you like to be your own boss while doing legal work that helps serve the community? The Connecticut Community Law Center (“CCLC”) is an incubator program that endeavors to make legal services more accessible to individuals of modest economic means. Located in Starr Hall, CCLC is a 24 month program that provides career support and training for highly motivated, socially conscious attorneys that want to start their own solo practices. Applicants admitted to the CCLC program will operate independent legal practices in subsidized, furnished office space and have access to law practice management counseling, mentorship, and other support services. In return for this opportunity, participants in the program will provide legal services to individual of modest economic means, who will pay for those services. Participants will be responsible for building and managing their own sources of clients, but CCLC will assist in developing client referral sources. Participants must commit to representing clients in areas where low and moderate income individuals frequently go without representation such as family, housing, consumer, probate, pardons, and immigration.
