How to Start a Legal Clinic: Clinic in a Box

Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans is a project of the State Bar of Texas. TLTV specializes in assisting attorneys who wish to volunteer their time helping low income veterans.

TLTV’s website is a clearinghouse for Texas attorneys looking to volunteer their services for low income veterans. In addition to their unique "Clinic in a Box" project, the website offers information on partnering with a local bar association to mobilize attorneys, educational materials including CLE webinars, and much more.

While some resources are specific to Texas, the breadth of what TLVT offers will support advocates throughout the nation:

Clinic in a Box

At a time when lawyers and local bar associations are interested in providing high quality assistance to veterans, the Texas "clinic in a box" provides a wonderful template for any group. 

The current  "Clinic in a Box" listing of contents and individual resources is provided here.
