About Santa Clara University School of Law Katherine and George Alexander Community Law Center

About this Organization:
For the past twelve years the Katharine & George Alexander Community Law Center has provided pro bono advice and representation in several areas including workers' rights, workers' compensation, consumer rights and immigration rights. Poverty-stricken minorities and immigrants make up the vast majority of clients of the KGACLC, which is the civil clinical component of the Santa Clara University School of Law. It utilizes law students working under attorney supervision to provide free legal services. This model achieves two goals: (1) it allows law students to receive excellent training in the handling of cases involving real clients, with close supervision, allowing them to become better attorneys, and (2) it provides very low income clients with representation they would not have otherwise. The utilization of law students permits the Center to represent more clients than would a legal services program solely staffed by attorneys, and encourages legal professionals to consider a career serving the public interest. Many of our graduates remain committed to providing pro bono services throughout their legal career.
Restrictions:
The Clinic serves low income clients.
