Law students actually cannot perform legal services on their own.  Because they do not have a law degree yet, this is considered the unauthorized practice of law.

However, there are some resources that you might find helpful:

  • IN.gov - Find a Legal Provider - a listing of pro bono and legal aid services across the state; you might also check at your local courthouse for any local legal aid resources they might be able to recommend.
  • The law school also has a Community Legal Clinic; they have their own intake procedure, so you will have to contact them to see if you qualify for their services.
  • If you would like to represent yourself, you are welcome to come in and use the materials in our collection at the Law Library to help with your case.  Reference librarians are on hand to answer your questions, but we are also unable to give legal advice; we can simply direct you to materials that can lead you to your answers.
