Saint Louis University School of Law has announced an agreement with Catholic Legal Assistance Ministry (CLAM) to provide legal service to the poor in the law school’s new building, 100 N. Tucker Blvd., adjacent to the Civil Courts Building in downtown St. Louis when the law school moves in August.
The partnership between CLAM and the SLU LAW Legal Clinics, which offers upper division students practical experience while providing legal services to the community, began in 1999 when both organizations were located on Saint Louis University’s midtown campus.
CLAM, which offers assistance for impoverished families who do not have the means to afford an attorney, is an agency of Catholic Charities of St. Louis and is housed in a separate law office from the Clinics.
CLAM and the Clinics will continue to refer cases to each other and to co-counsel on important impact litigation regarding immigration, adoption subsidies and other issues of concern for the poor. CLAM’s new space will be on the 7th floor of 100 N. Tucker Blvd with offices next to the SLU LAW Legal Clinics.
