Legal Access Alameda (Legal Access) is the pro bono arm of the Alameda County Bar Association. Legal Access provides free legal services to low-income people in Alameda County through monthly legal clinics in a range of areas of law.

Legal Access relies on the support and commitment of volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and law school graduates to hold over 30 legal clinics in a month in the areas of family law, bankruptcy, guardianship, housing and more.

At Legal Access, we are committed to bridging the justice gap for those in our community who cannot afford an attorney. We strongly believe that a person’s access to justice should not be determined by their income.

Formerly known as “Volunteer Legal Services Corporation (“VLSC”)”
