Community Lawyers, Inc. provides low and moderate-income people access to affordable legal services and develops innovative opportunities for attorneys and law students in underserved communities.
Community Lawyers, Inc. (“CLI”) seeks law students for its 10 week-summer internship program that focuses on providing legal assistance to low-income and moderate-income clients. The internship program is structured to strengthen the relationships between the private bar and legal aid organizations in Southern California to increase the options available to legal services consumers.
The CLI Summer Internship Program allows law students to obtain first-hand working experience in the community-based legal services arena. In addition, students will be given the unique opportunity to build relationships with judges, attorneys and community leaders to increase the delivery of affordable legal services while bolstering their abilities to navigate the legal profession. Interns will spend a portion of their summer at a small law firm and will spend a portion of their summer at a non-profit legal aid office. Placements will be determined by the student’s individual interests.
Private attorneys volunteer to provide legal education and information to the public through self-help clinics and workshops. Some workshops are developed specifically for legal aid eligible clients while others are open to all. In order to keep our doors open we request a minimum donation of $25 for attending our workshops or clinics.
There is a $1 fee per half hour of computer use & a 25¢ fee per page to print or copy.
Please call to make an appointment:(310) 635-8181.
All clinics and workshops take place at the Community Lawyers Access Center located at 1216 East Compton Boulevard, Compton, CA 90221.
