NIU College of Law
Health Advocacy Clinic

Students work with legal clients and medical patients at the NIU Law Health Advocacy Clinic.

Our Clients and Cases

This Clinic is part of a partnership between Northern Illinois University College of Law, Aunt Martha’s Health Center, and Hesed House Shelter and Transitional Living Community.

  • The Clinic provides legal representation to clients, who are receiving health-related services from Aunt Martha's, in order to address socio-environmental barriers affecting  their health and stability.
  • The Clinic educates and trains NIU Law students to work collaboratively, develop and apply legal skills through client representation, and awaken in them a duty to use those skills to serve others.
  • The Clinic seeks to develop and sustain inter-disciplinary relationships among healthcare providers, social workers, lawyers, and law students to holistically address client and patient needs.
  • The Clinic seeks to address systemic legal and socio-environmental barriers affecting clients’ health and stability through community and policy advocacy.
