AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project

The AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project trains
students to serve the unmet legal needs of a
highly stigmatized largely indigent segment
of the population.

 

AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project

The Duke AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project has been providing free legal assistance to low-income HIV-infected clients since 1996. The AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project offers law students the opportunity to develop practical lawyering skills through direct representation of clients under close attorney supervision. Each semester ten students are enrolled in this clinical law course, delivering over 100 hours of direct client services each. The students receive practical skills training, specialized training in the law relating to HIV/AIDS and cancer, and academic credit. Through their work, the AIDS/HIV and Cancer Legal Project fills a critical need for legal representation of some of the neediest clients in North Carolina. Read more about the clinic.
