A group of twelve second and third year law students at CWSL volunteer their time each week to meet with clients and assist specialty attorneys in their consultations.
Community Law Project Administrators/Interpreters
The Community Law Project is able to broaden its community impact with the help of several bilingual undergraduate students from colleges throughout the county. These students volunteer their time to help with the administration of each clinic by helping check-in clients, enter data, and aid the law student volunteers, as interpreters, to bridge language barriers and provide better service to our clients.
