LSIC is the oldest legal services clinic in the District and believes in ensuring due process for all civil litigants. To that end and at the behest of DC Superior Court, in early 2018 we established a first-of-its-kind project to provide representation to respondents in CPO matters. You can learn more about why this representation is important and details about the training on the attached flyer.
