Legal Assistance for the Public

A guide listing legal aid, pro bono, and self-help services for unrepresented litigants searching for legal help.


Battling a legal issue can be a daunting task. When facing litigation, it may be difficult to understand the problem or decide whether to hire an attorney or act alone as a self-represented litigant.

The George Mason University Law Library cannot provide legal advice or assistance, and the law school does not have a program to provide general legal services. We created this guide to help members of the public find legal assistance in the state of Virginia. 

Most of Scalia Law's clinics do not accept clients on a call or walk-in basis. Active-duty service members, dependents, and veterans of the military who are in need of legal assistance should contact MVETS at 703-993-8214 or visit the MVETS Application Page to submit an intake application.

If you have any questions about this guide, please contact us at or give us a call at (703) 993-8076.
