Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) welcomes a diverse range of volunteers.
“We educated, privileged lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice.”
-Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer
We invite private attorneys and attorneys and paralegals from firms and in-house legal departments to take full-scope cases or to volunteer in our immigration, housing and reentry clinics. All of our pro bono volunteers receive training and mentoring throughout a case and our clinics are supervised by expert attorneys. We are a certified MCLE provider and also provide malpractice insurance for our pro bono volunteers. Check out our Pro Bono Year in Review for more background on how you can make a difference!
To receive regular emails about available cases, or for more information, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
At CLSEPA, we welcome undergraduate interns who are currently enrolled in an accredited college program. We hire interns throughout the year to work in our offices mostly for academic credit. Ideal candidates are passionate about social justice, interested in non-profit work, detail-oriented, and prepared to work on a variety of tasks. CLSEPA’s clientele is extremely diverse, and the majority of our clients are low-income persons of color. It is important that our staff work effectively in all cross-cultural situations, with our clients, with our coworkers, and with the community.
Here at CLSEPA, we strive to create an inclusive and respectful workplace in which differences are acknowledged and valued.
