For the Public

The Mithoff Progam does not provide direct representation to individuals seeking legal assistance. If you are seeking legal representation or legal advice, please refer to our Legal Resources page for information on outside organizations that may be able to assist you.

The Mithoff Program operates a small number of pro bono legal clinics at which law students and volunteer attorneys provide limited to assistance to individuals with specific types of legal problems. At this time, all of our clinics are focused on assisting individuals with issues related to expunging or sealing their criminal records. Please visit our Pro Bono Clinics page for additional information about our next Expunction Clinic.

Outside of the Mithoff Program, Texas Law has a number of legal clinics that specialize in specific areas of law. Texas Law’s legal clinics accept only a small number of cases, and no clinic provides advice to persons other than clients.

Most Texas Law clinics accept cases strictly through referrals from nonprofit organizations or by court appointment. A few clinics accept cases in response to requests for assistance from individuals, community groups, and other entities. If you have a legal problem and would like to see how our legal clinics take cases, visit the Clinical Program at Texas Law and click on the link for the clinic most relevant to your situation.

If the relevant clinic does not accept cases in response to requests from the public, or if you have a type of legal problem that is not addressed by any of our clinics, we will not be able to assist you. Please visit the Legal Resources page for outside organizations that may be able to help.
