How to Become a Client of the CLC

If you are interested in becoming a client of the Community Law Clinic, please call 650.725.9200. If we are open for intake (see below), the receptionist will ask you several questions to see if you fall within our service areas. If you do, the receptionist will have a student call you back to schedule an intake appointment.

Because it is a law school educational program, the Clinic does not take on as large a volume of cases as an independent legal services office. The Clinic is open for intake during the early parts of the two academic quarters (usually in January and then again in April) and periodically over the summer. We close intake when our students have as many cases and clients as they can competently handle. If we are closed for intake when you call, the receptionist will give you referrals to other agencies that may be able to help you. If your case is not urgent, she will tell you when you should call back to learn if intake has re-opened.
