JusticeCorps is a multiple-award-winning national service program that has helped over one million Californians find access to justice over the past 12 years. Building on this legacy of success, members volunteer to sJusticeCorperve people coming to court without an attorneys, who are trying to resolve crucial legal matters affecting their family, housing, personal safety, and financial stability. JusticeCorps members serve in court-based self-help centers in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and San Diego educating litigants on their legal options and potential outcomes. By providing neutral assistance—not legal advice—JusticeCorps members empower litigants to make the best choice for their particular case.
