We know that sometimes the biggest barrier to serving is not knowing where to start, so we've compiled some great free or low-cost resources here for you to learn about the areas of law that impact our clients the most.
Please do not feel that you have to be an expert in all of these areas of law before you can volunteer - sometimes learning "on the job" is the fastest way to get started! Thanks to a generous grant from the Hugh & Hazel Darling Foundation, we have created a comprehensive Legal Aid Manual that is available for all of our attorneys to use and reference at our clinics.
The most common areas of law that we see at our clinics include:
PLI (Practicing Law Institute)
PBTI (Pro Bono Training Institute)
LA Law Library Trainings
Legal Aid Association of California
Root & Rebound Reentry Training Hub
Bet Tzedek Resources
