Economic Justice Clinic


Economic Justice Clinic

The Economic Justice Clinic provides free legal services to low-income clients in consumer law matters. Notre Dame Law students, under the supervision of the clinical faculty, represent clients in cases involving mortgage foreclosures, fraud, predatory lending, land contract scams, foreclosure rescue scams, and debt collection. Additionally, the clinic works with local community agencies to provide consumer education to targeted populations.

The Economic Justice Clinic is led by Professor Judith Fox.

While the Economic Justice Clinic accepts cases in a broad range of consumer matters, it gives priority to the following issues:

Predatory Lending:

  • homeowners in danger of losing their home due to predatory lending practices
  • individuals, especially those from vulnerable populations, who have become victims of predatory payday lending practices
  • individuals targeted for predatory lending practices due to their race, sex, national origin, age or disability

Fraud and Misrepresentation:

  • homeowners, especially those from vulnerable populations, who have become the victims of fraudulent practices of home contractor or repairs
  • victims of foreclosure rescue scams

Debt Collection:

  • victims of abusive debt collection practices
  • victims of illegal garnishments
