In 2015, the Northwest Colorado Legal Services Project (NCLSP) will carry forward the past changes made to the Legal Advice Clinic in Summit County. The NLCP will conduct them on the first Thursday of each month from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Additionally, the clinics will still be held at the Colorado Workforce Center on 602 Galena Street in Frisco. Starting in 2015, limited walk-ins will be accepted in order to expand access to the clinics.
NCLSP will continue asking clinic attendees to apply in advance. By having applications beforehand, all the information will be in a file for volunteer attorneys, including documents such as court papers, leases, and the like. Attorneys will receive an email prior to the Clinic with: (1) names of applicant & adverse parties so you run a prior conflict check; and (2) the number of scheduled appointments so you’ll have a better idea of your time commitment. Of course, applicants will be pre-screened to ensure they qualify for NCLSP services. Each applicant will be given a half-hour appointment. So, there will be a maximum of 6 applicants seen at each Clinic. At the Workforce Center, NCLSP will have access to the internet and be able to print out things like court forms to hand to applicants during their visit. Current statutes will be available!
NCLSP is also asking Summit County attorneys who volunteer for the Clinic to advise applicants in Clear Creek County through Skype™. The Clinic will provide the Skype™ connections. The attorney will see and hear applicants (who will access Skype™ at a location in Clear Creek County) and advise applicants about their cases. Clear Creek applicants will also apply in advance and provide their case documents for the attorney to review during the advice session. The Skype™ sessions will each last a half hour and will be included in the total time for the Clinic (1:30 – 4:30).
