We're an innovative legal aid nonprofit that believes everyone should be able to enforce all their civil rights - and we're inviting committed volunteers with legal training to join us in making that a reality. We work in the highest need neighborhoods of San Francisco, helping people with legal issues in over three dozen practice areas. Right now, we're specifically looking for help in housing, immigration, employment, and estate planning.
We offer the ability to get practical, hands on experience working with low-income clients in a variety of circumstances. We'll teach you substantive law, client management techniques, and procedure in a fast-paced and high-tech environment. Qualified volunteers will manage their own cases, do their own hearings, and negotiate with adverse party under the training and supervision of our staff.
We offer our volunteers free access to PLI trainings (which give MCLE credit), flexible hours, deep experience, and the ability to have a big impact in the lives of our city's most marginalized residents.
