Who We Are

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.

FLAC focuses on assisting victims of domestic abuse, elder abuse, or those who experience great barriers to justice. This organization is the only student run legal aid clinic in the nation 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.

Learn more about us and our students here.

If you are experiencing a legal issue that is NOT related to family law or elder law, or if you are NOT a resident of Wayne County, feel free to contact our office for referral resources, or see our Resources page.
