WAAL LEGAL CLINICS

LEGAL CLINIC AT PATHFINDERS MILWAUKEE

In partnership with the State Bar of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Association of African-American Lawyers hosts a pro bono legal clinic on select dates at Pathfinders Milwaukee. Volunteer attorneys meet with and consult with individuals on criminal law issues, and landlord/tenant law issues.

Pathfinders Milwaukee empowers youth confronted by homelessness, crisis, or trauma to be safe and connected in order to develop a path towards self-sufficiency, healthier families, and a stronger community.

To volunteer at the legal clinic, contact WAAL Community Outreach Director Amber Raffeet August at waalawyers@gmail.com. For legal assistance, contact Pathfinders Milwaukee.

A future legal clinic will be scheduled at a later date.

EXPUNGEMENT LEGAL CLINIC

On June 2, 2018, the Wisconsin Association of African-American Lawyers hosted its first expungement legal clinic in collaboration with the Urban League of Greater Madison, Foley & Lardner, LLP, Madison Area Urban Ministry, Legal Action of Wisconsin, and the State Bar of Wisconsin. Volunteer attorneys met with individuals convicted of low-level felonies and misdemeanors and helped determine if their offenses can be removed or expunged from their records.

To volunteer at a expungement legal clinic, contact WAAL Madision Liaison Alexander Lodge at waalawyers@gmail.com. For legal assistance, contact Urban League of Greater Madison.

A future expungement legal clinic will be scheduled at a later date.
