NLSLA offers a range of pro bono opportunities to firms and attorneys in our continuing effort to provide legal services to some of the most underserved communities in LA County. NLSLA prides itself on matching pro bono attorneys and firms with meaningful and appropriate pro bono opportunities.
Each year, NLSLA provides free legal assistance to over 150,000 individuals and families needing help in areas including housing, immigration, family law and domestic violence, education, re-entry and public benefits. We are looking for volunteer attorneys to help us expand the work we do in the following areas: NLSLA Legal Specialties
Pro Bono attorneys are provided with substantive trainings in each of the program areas we serve. Our attorneys supervise, mentor and support our pro bono attorneys to ensure that our clients receive the highest level of service.
If you are a retired California attorney, and you would like to stay active and give back to your community, the State Bar has a program that provides you with free active Bar membership. NLSLA will provide you with free MCLA training, malpractice insurance, and all the legal and technical support you need to volunteer. For more information, please contact Skip Koenig via the contacts shown above.
NLSLA volunteers are an essential part of the organization, and stand alongside attorneys and advocates in fighting for individual rights and systemic change. Our volunteers work with advocates doing community outreach in neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles, assist our legal staff at Self-Help Clinics at the Los Angeles Superior Court, and support administrative staff in our offices.
