The Justice & Diversity Center

The Justice & Diversity Center (JDC) of The Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF) launched in March 2013 with the merging of two of BASF’s most dynamic and impactful efforts in the legal community—the Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP) and the Diversity Educational Programs—into one 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Justice & Diversity Center is governed by a 25-person board of directors and is administered by an executive director. 

It contains three components: Pro Bono Legal Services Program, the Homeless Advocacy Project, and the Diversity Educational Program.  Within these programs some two-dozen major activities operate.

Justice & Diversity Center (JDC) Mission Statement

The Justice & Diversity Center advances fairness and equality by providing pro bono legal services to low-income people and educational programs that foster diversity in the legal profession.
