Almost 50 years ago, a consortium of District of Columbia law schools created Law Students in Court (LSC) as a response to the crisis in legal services for the poor. LSIC is the oldest legal services nonprofit in the District of Columbia.
Today, the work of LSIC is still designed to make justice a reality for low-income residents of DC. The clinical education program continues the tradition of LSIC’s founding by training and inspiring the next generation of social justice advocates. The housing department zealously defends against evictions and supports the preservation and creation of affordable housing. And the expungement program breaks down barriers to employment and housing for re-entering citizens.
