Community Services 

 

UHELP has an attorney/professor, a program administrator/legal assistant and sometimes has a student law clerk. UHELP operates throughout the calendar academic year and provides basic legal assistance, advice, information and referral. UHELP is not permitted to assist with business or criminal law matters or with personal injury or other fee-generating cases. You may qualify for services if you are a resident of Oʻahu, you are 55 years or older and have limited income and assets or if you are a caregiver of an older person on Oʻahu and need legal assistance on behalf of the older person. (Each case is evaluated according to its own merits and in accordance with staff capabilities and limited resources.)

 

UHELP invites our island community to attend various outreach programs designed to help  kupuna and their caregivers. Each year we sponsor our traditional “ ‘Nite’ of the Living Will” where we provide instruction and material to complete an Advance Health care Directive. During the Spring and Fall semesters, we may sponsor other seminars that help “decide what matters and what to do.”

There are no fees charged for our services. However, donations are welcome. Because of our limited staff and resources, we give priority to the most needy of clients.

 

Funding for UHELP is provided by the University of Hawaiʻi William S. Richardson School of Law, the State of Hawaiʻi Judiciary, the Hawaiʻi Justice Foundation and our community of donors.
