ILS Launches Community Development Law Clinic

The Community Development Legal Project is a new endeavor launched by Indiana Legal Services. It will help meet the underserved legal needs of non-profit organizations that serve low-income individuals. We recognize that legal services can be expensive (and often unaffordable) for small non-profit community organizations. Resources spent on legal services also take away from programming.

With this project, we will offer free legal services to eligible non-profit groups, including: entity formation, real estate services (including quiet title actions), contract review, and governing document review, lease review, etc.

This project will be housed in ILS’s Indianapolis regional office. It will primarily focus on central Indiana organizations, but can serve other parts of the state. While ILS has expertise in many of the above areas, we will partner with pro bono attorneys in the community to help meet the need.

To learn more about this project and whether your organization may be eligible, please contact the project attorney, Marcus Bickle at
