Legal Assistance Clinic
The NYLAG Legal Clinic for Pro Se Litigants in the Southern District of New York is a free legal clinic staffed by attorneys and paralegals to assist those who are representing themselves or planning to represent themselves in civil lawsuits in the Southern District of New York. The Clinic, which is not part of or run by the Court, assists nonincarcerated litigants with federal civil cases including cases involving civil rights, employment discrimination, labor law, social security benefits, foreclosure and tax.
As a public health precaution, the New York Legal Assistance Group’s Legal Clinic for Pro Se Litigants has temporarily suspended all in-person client meetings as of Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Limited scope legal assistance will continue to be provided, but only by appointment and only over the phone. During this time, we cannot assist walk-in visitors to the clinic.
To make an appointment please complete the clinic's intake form on your computer or smartphone. Alternatively, call 212-659-6190 and leave a message, including your telephone number. The clinic will get back to you, but this method of intake will take longer.
