Legal Clinic Calendar

Important Notice Concerning Clinic Availability and Public Health:

In accord with evolving COVID-19 public health guidance, Bay Area Legal Aid has resumed some “in-person” legal clinics, while others will continue as remote events either by phone or online. Our attorneys and support staff will work to help you outside of clinic if you have a time sensitive legal issue. Our Legal Advice Line will remain open with additional staffing and resources to help us serve more clients during this period. Please see individual clinic listings for additional information on emergency service and resources related to specific clinics.
Masks will be required for all participants in in-person clinics, along with symptom screening before the appointment begins.
California Relay Service: Dial 7-1-1 or from TTY dial 1-800-735-2929 or visit California Relay Service for more information.
