Limited Assistance: Rule of Professional Conduct 1.2 allows a lawyer to limit the scope of representation offered to a client if the client is properly informed of the limitation. Advice Clinic clients sign an acknowledgment explaining the limited scope of representation available to at the Clinic.
Conflicts of Interest: Volunteers may not have an opportunity to check conflicts before meeting with a client, but Rule of Professional Conduct 6.5 relieves lawyers from compliance with the standard conflict-of-interest rules when volunteering at an advice clinic conducted by a legal aid program.
Dress: Dress is casual.
Unless otherwise noted, all Advice Clinic clients are “low income persons” as defined by Legal Services Corporation regulations.
