Croak Community Legal Clinic


For years, Croak Student Legal Services (CSLS) provided free and confidential legal advice to DePaul students. CSLS is no longer a stand-alone legal services office, but students can find online legal resources here: Student Legal Resources. In addition, the DePaul College of Law now offers legal guidance through workshops offered by the Croak Community Legal Clinic (CCLC). These workshops are designed to help you understand your legal rights and obligations and help you find useful resources. Information about upcoming workshops can be found on the Student Legal Resources website. CCLC does not take cases or represent students in court​.

CCLC is named after Rev. Thomas M. Croak, C.M., a Vincentian priest and lawyer who started the Croak Student Legal Services to provide legal resources to DePaul students. CCLC is an outgrowth of that program and a continuation of Rev. Croak’s dedication to knowledge, education and public service.​
