Legal Service Clinics

In collaboration with Volunteer Lawyers Network, CAP-HC holds the Legal Service Clinics at locations throughout Hennepin County to allow residents more localized access to service.

DACA Renewal Clinic

On September 5, 2017 the U.S. government announced the end of the DACA program. If you have not yet renewed your DACA status and it expires any time between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 it is extremely important that you file a renewal with the USCIS by October 5, 2017.

CAP-HC will be holding a Legal Service Clinic to help applicants renew their DACA applications. The clinic will be held on Wednesday, September 20th at the Minneapolis Urban League. 

For an appointment, please call 952-697-1308.

Get Legal Advice Online

 The Minnesota Legal Advice Online Progam (MLAO), offered by Legal Services State Support, gives Minnesotans ages 14 and up the ability to email questions to lawyers. 

Eligibility:

  • MLAO clients must have a household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines (for individuals, this is an annual income of $23,340; for a family of four, it's $47,700). 
  • Clients must be Minnesota residents aged 14 or older. 
  • There are no asset thresholds or other limitations, such as immigration or incarceration status. 
  • MLAO is only for civil, or non-criminal, legal questions. If a client's question is about something he or she could go to jail for, that client cannot get legal advice for that question through MLAO.  The program also doesn't offer bankruptcy advice.  

Clients cannot get advice from a volunteer lawyer through MLAO if they are already working with another lawyer on that legal issue.
