LSIC Programs

D.C. Law Students In Court Program, Inc. (LSIC) founded in 1968, is a consortium program established by five area law schools (American, Catholic, Georgetown, George Washington and Howard universities). It is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. LSIC accepts third-year law students from these law schools to help provide high-quality, civil and criminal legal assistance and representation to 5,000 low-income individuals and families annually in Washington, D.C. It is one of the oldest and largest clinical education programs in the country. LSIC plays a critical role in addressing the unmet legal needs of low-income D.C. residents. LSIC has two divisions: a Civil Division and a Criminal Division.

Civil Division

Over 80% of the Civil Division’s work concerns landlord-tenant and housing matters and the remaining work involves small claims actions such as breach of contract and consumer protection issues, as well as other civil and appellate cases.

Criminal Division

The Criminal Division defends the constitutional rights of indigent adults charged with misdemeanors and juveniles charged with delinquent acts in D.C. Superior Court.
