Legal Clinics

The Legal Clinics are part of LBAW's Community Service Committee.  The Committee facilitates access to legal services by offering free topic-based legal education and advice to low-income and underserved Latino community members.  In collaboration with pro bono attorneys and community organizations, like Centro de la Raza, LBAW members and volunteers have coordinated legal educational presentations and advice clinics at various locations throughout Western and Eastern Washington. LBAW also partners with local law firms, like Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, in the facilitation of these legal clinics. 

To become a volunteer, please email [email protected].
