LANCASTER — Antelope Valley College will offer a monthly legal clinic for students as part of a three-month trial under a memorandum of understanding between the Department of Student Life and Services and Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County.

Neighborhood Legal Services will provide legal services through the monthly clinic at no cost to AV College, students, or community members, according to a memorandum of understanding approved Monday night by the AV College Board of Trustees.

Neighborhood Legal Services will provide criminal record clearing and school discipline advocacy at the clinic, according to the MOU.  Students will be also screened for additional Neighborhood Legal Services programs and referred appropriately as needed.

The MOU is good through December. The program will be evaluated and a determination made whether to continue it into 2020.
