SMU Dedman School of Law launches a Legal Helpline. A project with an emergency helpline that offers North Texas residents the opportunity to secure free legal assistance with matters related to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as housing, immigration and consumer protection.
Working under the supervision of SMU Law Clinic faculty, more than 45 law students will staff the COVID-19 Legal Helpline, which may be reached by dialing 214-SMU-COVD (214-768-2683).
Callers seeking assistance with certain COVID-19 related legal problems can receive assistance through the SMU legal clinics or, when necessary, a referral to local law firms and attorneys providing free services in some specialized areas.
Legal Helpline will be available June-July 2020 on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays 9am-12pm Tuesdays/Thursdays 1pm-4pm and Wednesdays 5pm-8pm
*Spanish speakers are available and ready to help on Tuesdays and Thursdays only.
