UPCOMING LEGAL CLINICS
Important notice concerning clinic availability and public health
In accordance 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. Please see individual clinic listings for additional information on emergency service and resources related to specific clinics. Please call the RSVP number on the listing for the clinic you are interested in, so that we can provide updated information on whether the clinic is being held in-person or by phone.
For in-person clinics, all participants will be required to wear masks, and to complete symptom screening before the appointment begins.
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.
California Relay Service: Dial 7-1-1 or from TTY dial 1-800-735-2929 or visit California Relay Service for more information.
