The Domestic Violence Pro Bono Project seeks to support survivors of domestic violence by a) providing direct legal services to survivors of domestic violence seeking civil remedies and b) conducting legal research and writing for our partner organization, Bay Area Legal Aid. We partner with Bay Area Legal Aid to offer clinics throughout the year, as well as research and writing opportunities.
