"Help others help themselves find Justice. Learn about the law and life in return."
Student Member Program
JusticeCorps recruits 70+ college students every year for our student member program. Students commit to an intensive 300 hours in Self-Help Centers throughout the Bay Area, helping litigants with legal information for their family and civil law cases. In order to be eligible for the program, you must be a student who will be enrolled in one of our six partner universities or three community colleges during the academic year. Our partner schools are California State University-East Bay, San Francisco State University, San José State University, Santa Clara University, Stanford University, University of California-Berkeley, College of San Mateo, Cañada College, and Skyline College.
JusticeCorps recruits 7 university graduates (and graduating seniors) annually to serve self-represented litigants in Alameda County (Hayward), San Francisco County (San Francisco), Santa Clara County (San Jose), and San Mateo County (Redwood City & South San Francisco). Fellows do not have to be from one of our partnering universities. All fellows participate in an Orientation and begin their service in late August, as well as attend a program-wide Orientation and training when our part-time members start (usually a month later, in September). The responsibilities of our fellows may vary between the different counties where they are placed. But all fellows act as a leader for their site's part time members and continue to assist litigants. Interested applicants will need to have graduated from an accredited university or be a graduating senior by August of the program start date.
If you are a JusticeCorps Alum still enrolled at one of our partner universities and would like to continue being involved in the JusticeCorps program, please contact Jonathan Martinez at for more information on the University Representative position.
In conjunction with the Superior Courts of California & Bay Area Legal Aid, for those looking for summer opportunities working in a similar setting as the JusticeCorps program, we encourage to look into the Access 2 Justice Summer Program. Please access the link below to learn more.
