Attendance at an Olmsted Law Library clinic is limited to: 1) residents of, or individuals working in, Olmsted County who Minnesota legal issues or non-County residents who have cases that are filed in Olmsted County; and, 2) those who are not currently represented by an attorney on the matter they want to discuss.
A legal clinic is an opportunity for an unrepresented party to meet briefly with a volunteer attorney and get legal advice concerning their case. Clinic sessions are intended to be a one-time event to assist those who are representing themselves in the courts. Clinic attorneys are not there to represent the person on their case, nor are the clinic sessions intended to take the place of attorney representation.
Olmsted County Law Library clinics do not cover all topics, or even all issues within a covered topic. Each clinic category will provide information on what is – and is not – covered in a clinic session.
Registration in advance is required for all clinics, and space is limited.
Notice as of March 19, 2020: All legal clinics will be held remotely rather than in person.
