The Justice & Diversity Center’s (JDC) Legal Services Programs provide pro bono legal and related social services to low-income and homeless San Francisco residents. JDC provides these services primarily through the use of volunteer attorneys. JDC takes a holistic approach to legal services, seeking to address the full range of legal and social services issues that prevent clients from retaining stability in their lives.
Becoming involved with JDC’s Legal Services Programs is an excellent way to gain experience as well as develop and hone your legal skills. Volunteering for JDC’s Family Law, Eviction Defense, and/or Consumer Projects provides you with extensive substantive law training, supervision and support from JDC staff, litigation experience and client contact, as well as introductions to attorney mentors.
