Legal Advice, Too


Illustration by Lisa Haneyvery Tuesday, the UMB Community Engagement Center (CEC) is filled with students from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law for the JustAdvice legal clinic. The clinic lives up to its name as the students meet one-on-one with West Baltimore neighbors who are in need of legal counseling. Since its inception at the CEC in fall 2015, the clinic has given free legal advice to nearly 400 city residents, saving them a total of more than $62,000 in legal fees.
