In response to the rapidly evolving events surrounding COVID-19, California Western’s Community Law Project's
Clinics are now being conducted virtually. For an intake, please call (619) 780-7498.
The Community Law Project (CLP) provides free legal information in a variety of practice areas to
low income and indigent communities in each of its four clinics spread throughout San Diego County.
The Community Law Project welcomes California Western law student volunteers and attorney volunteers. Law students
work one-on-one with clients and volunteer attorneys in a variety of legal areas, according to their interests. This
unique opportunity allows volunteer law students to experience the benefits of helping those in need while learning
essential lawyering skills from experienced practitioners.
- Criminal Law
- Bankruptcy Law
- Trusts & Estates Law
- Personal Injury Law
- Housing and Landlord/Tenant Law
- Employment Law
- Family Law
- Public Benefits Law
- Immigration Law
- Consumer Law
- Tax Law
CLP also provides periodic workshops and presentations on topics of interest. Attorneys are frequently available for
personal consultation following the workshops and presentations.
Law students who volunteer with CLP can deepen their understanding of public interest work and debrief their live
client experiences through a classroom component taught by CLP's Executive Director, Dana Sisitsky, and Supervising
Attorney Ted Janowsky.
