Shelter Legal Services

Boston University School of Law's Shelter Legal Services is a student group that supplements the work of our parent group, Shelter Legal Services Foundation, Inc. Shelter Legal Services Foundation, Inc. increases access to quality, pro bono legal services for the poor. Since 1991, Shelter Legal Services Foundation, Inc. has combined the volunteer efforts of law students and attorneys to represent and advise more than 3,800 homeless and poor people.

Shelter Legal Services Foundation, Inc. now includes student volunteers from Boston College Law School, Boston University School of Law, New England School of Law and Suffolk Law School. We hold weekly legal clinics at two Boston shelters and three Cambridge locations. Student volunteers, with the assistance of attorneys, staff the weekly legal clinics, advise clients and advocate in courts and administrative agencies throughout the Commonwealth.
