Mentoring new sole practitioners to serve community needs

CCLI is a nonprofit law firm incubator in Saint Paul, Minnesota. We teach recent graduates of Mitchell Hamline School of Law to build sustainable, independent small-firm practices that serve the needs of low- and moderate-income Minnesotans. CCLI’s mission is to increase the number of small law firms in Minnesota providing affordable legal services to clients who are financially ineligible for legal assistance through existing legal nonprofits.

CCLI strives to close the justice gap, one small firm at a time. We are grateful for the support of our volunteers, donors, and other supporters -- and we welcome your questions and referrals. Thank you for visiting our site, and please consider making a donation. More about us
