Whatcom students provide invaluable professional services

Learning doesn’t end at the classroom for students in Whatcom’s paralegal studies program. These students polish their skills and knowledge in service to the community through their participation in Street Law @ WCC.

Under the guidance of the paralegal studies program coordinator, Street Law @ WCC is a service to provide legal advice and counsel for all currently enrolled Whatcom students (and community members) while also creating opportunities for paralegal studies students to hone their client interviewing and intake skills. Services include a brief consultation with an attorney regarding issues such as family matters, landlord/tenant disputes, debt collection cases, and more.

Street Law @ WCC is offered in fall, winter, and spring quarters. As many as 150 clients have benefited from this service annually.
