The CLC provides pro bono services to residents in Shelby County without enough resources to both pay the rent and pay a lawyer. They also offer educational programs and clinics.
For over 10 years, the center has provided legal assistance to over 30,000 local families with incomes between 125 and 175 percent of the poverty level. In other words, they help the people who cannot afford private counsel but make too much to receive assistance from Memphis Area Legal Services. For more on CLC, visit their Web site.
