Legal Advice and Referral Clinic


The Legal Advice and Referral Clinic (LARC) is a walk-in clinic that occurs on the second Saturday of each month at our Downtown San Francisco location (UC Hastings), and on the last Saturday of each month at our Bayview location in San Francisco. At these Clinics, low-income clients are able to receive legal advice and/or referrals from experienced attorneys in various areas of the law.  LARC is staffed in part by volunteers who primarily conduct client intakes to determine in what area(s) of law people want advice.  The clients are then able to sit with our experienced volunteer attorneys, and receive advice and/or referrals based on their issue.

We are always looking for experienced attorneys to give 10-15 minute client consultations in the following areas of law: Bankruptcy, Business/Contracts, Civil, Collection Defense, Criminal, Employment/Labor, Family, General Consumer, Immigration, Landlord Tenant, Personal Injury, Probate, Real Estate, SSI, Workers Comp, and other Miscellaneous Areas. We provide a brief orientation to new volunteers at the start of each clinic, but rely on the expertise of the volunteers to give the substantive consultations.
