For years, the Program operated a divorce clinic where every paraelgal student worked on a client divorce. Clients were screened by the judge’s chambers for financial eligibility. In the past, students in the Program have worked together in the Register and Recorder’s Office conducting title abstracts of derelict houses for the city of Oil City.
The Program remains active, along with our students, in pro-bono efforts to help other students and people in need. The Program believes this provides an invaluable service not only to clients but to students and the students are better prepared for the work force because of these activities.
Some of the Program’s current work includes: Expungements; Sealing arrest records; Name changes; Birth certificate gender change; Writ of Mandamus; Powers of Attorney; Living Wills; Medical directives; Corporate by-laws; LLCs; Summary criminal offenses; University Student Discipline hearings; General legal advice; Termination of time share contracts; Wills; Real property boundary disputes; Department of Environmental Protection permitting; Federal Wildlife Preserve Certification; and Traffic Citations.
