Founded in 1973, El Centro Legal Clinics is UCLA School of Law’s student-coordinated network of volunteer legal clinics. Through each of El Centro’s Clinics, law students provide legal services on a volunteer basis to a variety of communities in the greater Los Angeles area. Clinics focus on issues related to criminal justice, homelessness, HIV/AIDS, immigration, juvenile justice, tenants’ rights, domestic violence, public benefits, transgender rights, and workers’ rights. Getting involved in El Centro Legal Clinics is a great way to learn about what’s happening in the LA community, gain important legal skills, and support real people struggling, many of whom have few legal resources.
