How to Start a Clinic


Welcome!  We've been praying for you!  It's great to know that you have a heart for serving those in need of legal assistance.

If you are interested in starting a Christian Legal Aid project in your community, please follow these steps:

    1. See if there is already a CLA center in your community and if so contact them about getting involved. To find out if a CLA center already exists in your area please visit our directory.
    2. Check out the Christian Legal Aid Manual for information about as well step by step directions on how to start a Clinic in your area.

      • You can browse the online version here (or go directly to a section in the manual by selecting from left hand side menu); or
      • You can download the full version here (.pdf file).
    3. E-mail us with any further questions you may still have - and we will send you additional information.
