New appointment system for Appellate Self-Help Clinic begins:

Public Counsel's Appellate Self-Help Clinic provides procedural information and assistance to people who are representing themselves in appeals pending in the Second District Court of Appeal and the Appellate Division of any Superior Court within the Second District.

The Appellate Self-Help Clinic is open most Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Clinic consultations are by appointment only.

Appointments for the Appellate Self-Help Clinic can be made by calling (213) 830-7234 on Thursdays beginning at 11:00 a.m. until all available appointments are filled. Clinic staff will confirm appointments by telephone or e-mail no later than the close of business the next day (Friday). Appointments are for the following Wednesday.

Priority for appointments (but not a guarantee of an appointment) is given to the first ten callers who were not served in the Clinic during the preceding month. The available appointments almost always fill before 1:30 p.m.

Callers who do not receive an appointment confirmation by close of business on the Friday after their call do not have an appointment and will not be admitted to the Clinic.
