Contract with a Legal Clinic at a Law School
For the schools that have clinical law programs, it can be a mutually beneficial experience for both students and clients to have advocates who are completely focused on that particular client, not having the usual problems of billable hours, heavy caseloads, or conflicts of interests.
On the other hand, one has to be sure that there is adequate supervision, PSA coverage, expertise and continuity to meet the needs of the clients.
