ONU Law Clinics
Represent clients in real-life legal matters at the ONU Legal Clinic in Lima, Ohio. You’ll get hands-on experience doing things that real lawyers do, such as assuming responsibility for clients, confronting complex legal matters, interviewing clients, appearing in court, and drafting legal documents. You’ll be closely supervised by the director of law clinics and the clinic staff attorney. The clinic houses two separate legal clinics. The ONU Litigation Clinic represents clients on matters such as family law, housing, expungements, social security disability and other general litigation matters. The ONU Transactional Clinic represents non-profit organizations and local churches in corporate matters, including incorporation, obtaining tax exempt status with the IRS, real property issues and assists individuals with drafting estate planning and probate administration documents. The clinics provide free legal services to individuals and organizations that would otherwise not be able to afford legal representation.
