Mission Statement

The Lawyers' Committee is dedicated to advancing the rights of people of color, immigrants, refugees and poor people through the provision of pro bono legal services.

Description

The Committee is affiliated with the national Lawyers? Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, begun in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy. The principal mission of the Lawyers? Committee is to secure, through the rule of law, equal justice under law. In 1968, shortly after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the local Lawyers? Committee was created by leading members of the San Francisco Bar to advance civil rights, including the right to housing, employment, social services, education, health care, economic security, and fair treatment within the criminal system. Towards this end, the Lawyers? Committee staff, with the assistance of pro bono attorneys, provides free legal assistance and representation to individuals on civil legal matters. In addition, the Lawyers? Committee handles policy impact cases that focus on important civil rights issues.
