Role of Public Interest Organizations

Planning the Clinic in a Box® program is the responsibility of all of the host organizations – CPBO, the legal department or ACC chapter, the law firm, and the public interest organization. In addition, the host public interest organization is responsible for recruiting the clients.

Depending upon the license selected, CPBO or a legal department or ACC chapter administers the Clinic.  As a part of the license, CPBO provides form invitations and other materials to make this process run smoothly.

Public interest organizations may also provide malpractice insurance coverage to the in-house volunteers during the clinic, follow up with the clients after the clinic, and help place the clients with legal counsel after the Clinic, as needed.

For a more detailed outline of the role of public interest organizations, contact CPBO.
