Medical-Legal Partnership Clinic

Over forty years since the emergence of HIV, the 1 in 48 people in Baltimore City living with HIV continue to feel the impacts of the diagnosis in many areas of their lives. Students in this clinic address these impacts through a wide range of both litigation and non-litigation matters such as SSI/Social Security disability benefits, custody, employment discrimination, advance care planning and medical decision-making (preparing medical advance directives, simple wills, and powers of attorney), and legal name change for transgender clients.
