Consumer Defense Clinics: Building a Courthouse Clinic from the Ground Up

More than two-thirds of litigants in civil debt collection cases in the U.S. go through the court process unrepresented. As a result, many unrepresented consumers do not know how to defend themselves and often receive judgments for debts that have viable defenses or counter-claims. The key to addressing this problem is collaboration between pro bono providers, the judiciary, and private consumer attorneys.

How to Start/Maintain a Consumer Practice within a Legal Services Agency

According to the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), consumer issues account for eleven percent of all complaints in LSC-funded programs. Yet, the numbers of low income and economically vulnerable individuals impacted by debt collection, bankruptcy and other consumer problems are quite significant. For example, one in seven adults in the U.S. is being pursued by debt collectors, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Furthermore, recent studies show that Legal Aid offices often turn away nearly 50 percent of all individuals seeking legal remedies.
