Last week, DRLC submitted a letter to the L.A. County Board of Supervisors regarding alternatives to incarceration.

Pro Bono Attorney Opportunities
Whether you are a newly licensed, retired, a solo practitioner, in-house counsel, or a partner at law firm, you can make a difference!
The Pro Bono Program gives attorneys who are interested in disability civil rights law, special education law, cancer advocacy and other related opportunities to hone their advocacy skills and to make a difference in the community.
- Cancer Legal Resource Center - you have the opportunity to assist people with cancer as they face converging legal and medical problems. We need volunteer attorneys with insurance, medical, housing, employment, guardianship, estate planning, and other expertise.
- Disability Litigation Program - transform your community by removing barriers that deny equal access to people with disabilities. We need attorneys to co-counsel with us and to take referrals of large and small disability civil rights cases.
- Education Advocacy Program - help a student in need of special education achieve tremendous results. We need volunteer attorneys to participate in negotiating individualized Education Plans with school districts to ensure low-income and minority children receive the special education services they need. We provide free MCLE training and ongoing support to our EAP volunteers.
