Brief Bank


The Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC) is the statewide membership organization for the almost 100 nonprofits funded through IOLTA (Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) grants by the State Bar of California. Capitalizing on its structure as a membership organization, LAAC naturally takes on the role of advocating on behalf of this group of nonprofits. LAAC facilitates communication and coordination between programs, trains in core substantive areas, analyzes best practices, and assesses and improves the effectiveness of the delivery of legal aid in California, including working strategically to support rural and small programs and meet the needs of under-served populations.


Come join us and welcome LAAC to our new office on August 22nd! 

LAAC has recently moved our office to Oakland. We have officially settled in and would love to show our member programs and new neighbors our new digs!

Please join LAAC's staff and Board of Directors on Friday, August 22 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. to officially welcome us to our new home! Our new address is:
350 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Suite 701
Oakland, CA 94612

Drinks and light appetizers will be served! RSVP's are appreciated. You can RSVP by emailing Patrick Fodell at

We look forward to seeing you at our new home.

Have you checked out the Pleading Bank?

California now has a statewide pleading bank for attorneys working at IOLTA legal services organizations! This bank is possible thanks to a TIG (Technology Initiative Grant) from the Legal Services Corporation, and LAAC is proud to partner with the Legal Aid Society of San Diego, Inc. to make this resource available.
Check it out here!

LAAC’s three core program areas are:

  1. Advocacy, which focuses on increasing funding to support legal services;
  2. Training and Coordination within the California IOLTA Community, consisting of in-person conferences, online trainings, statewide meetings, and online resource sharing; and
  3. Member Services, including discounts on trainings, software, and interpretation services.
