HomeSavers Project Pro Bono Opportunity (MCLE approved Training)

Legal Aid offers pro bono opportunities within our HomeSavers Project. Pro Bonos can provide limited scope representation, participate in a settlement conference or go to trial by volunteering at one of three weekly clinics in Redwood City and Daly City. This is a great opportunity to assist pro per litigants, assist in the preparation of motions, attend settlement conferences or, in certain circumstances, participate in trial. You will offer legal counseling, advice and/or representation to tenants who are having problems with their landlords that relate to:

  • Disputes over the condition of the premises
  • Illegal acts by landlords
  • Evictions

For more information on our Pro Bono Opportunities, please contact Janet B. Seldon, Director of Pro Bono at jbseldon@legalaidsmc.org.
