Welcome to the Detroit Free Legal Aid Clinic



    Established in 1965, the Free Legal Aid Clinic (FLAC) provides legal assistance to low income and elderly residents of Wayne County in the areas of Family Law and Elder Law.

    The Clinic focuses on assisting victims of domestic violence, elder abuse or those who experience great barriers to justice. FLAC is the only student run legal aid clinic in the nation and is staffed entirely by Wayne State University Law School students who provide legal services under the supervision of licensed attorneys, pursuant to Michigan Court Rule 8.120.  Follow us on Facebook!

    In addition, if you are experiencing a legal issue that is NOT Family Law or Elder Law related, or are NOT a resident of Wayne County, feel free to contact our office for referral resources, or try 
our Resources page.
