They deserve an equal opportunity to life…

University of San Francisco School of Law students tell us what pro bono means to them. 

Last month, six law students traveled on a two-day Justice Bus trip to Fresno to provide free legal help with the expungement process, which helps individuals clean their criminal records and opens doors to opportunities that their records previously prevented. Thanks to the hard work of these law students and the advice of expert attorney volunteers, 31 individuals received legal assistance. A big shout out to our partners, Ciummo and Associates, the Fresno Vet Center, and University of San Francisco School of Law for bringing help, hope, and justice to the Fresno area!

Check out what these amazing students had to say about pro bono!

University of San Francisco School of Law students give their own personal quotes on why pro bono matters to them.

Thank you all for taking the time to talk with us! You make all the difference!

Wrapping up a summer on wheels

Justice Bus mobilized volunteers to bring legal help where it’s needed most!

As we wrap up the summer and prepare for fall, we’re excited to report back on a very successful Justice Bus summer season! This summer, the Justice Bus traveled to nine locations around the state–sometimes traveling to two locations in the same week! In three months, our amazing volunteers assisted 264 low-income individuals with a variety of legal problems, including housing, immigration, veterans benefits, expungements, estate planning, and medical debt-related issues.

A big thank you to all of our wonderful Justice Bus Riders, supervising attorneys, supporters, firms, and partnering organizations for bringing justice where it’s needed most!

The Justice Bus Project takes teams of attorney and law student volunteers from urban areas to set up free legal clinics for low-income Californians living in rural and isolated communities.  These clinics provide life-changing legal assistance to low-income veterans, vulnerable seniors, children with disabilities, low-wage workers, immigrant youth, and families.
