Legal Access Project Volunteers
The Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC) is looking for Legal Access volunteers, who will use LawHelpCA.org ( California’s official statewide resource for self-help legal referrals and information) to provide direct, person-to-person help for low-income clients in a stressful and alienating legal situation. Volunteers will assist people with finding information on housing, immigration, disability, family law and more.
Volunteers gain valuable hours of public interest experience, practice sorting through complex legal subjects in plain language for an everyday person, and see the impact immediately.
After a few training sessions at our Oakland office, you can participate from any computer with internet access, making this a flexible opportunity for busy law students! Volunteers do not need to have any prior legal knowledge and will receive training, supervision, and support from LAAC staff. Volunteers do not provide legal advice.
