Generally, you may call the number anytime during normal business hours (9:00am–5:00pm) to talk to a Utah Bar staff member to schedule an appointment with the Clinic. The Clinic mainly helps with immigration issues, but is willing to hear about any legal issue and may refer people to other organizations or attorneys if the Clinic cannot help. Family law matters will always be referred to Timpanogos Legal Center. The Clinic will only help those who are considered to have low or modest means. The Clinic is closed on holidays and during BYU Law School student breaks, especially the month of December. It is generally open during the summer.
