Get Involved

Inner City Law Center depends upon the generosity of volunteers and donors for all that we do. Each year, volunteers provide over $10 million worth of free legal services to ICLC clients. ICLC has many opportunities for you to get involved.

Pro Bono: ICLC recruits pro bono attorneys, paralegals and other professionals to take on matters involving eviction defense, homeless veterans, and slum housing, as well as research regarding public policy, impact litigation, and other matters. Pro bono assistance is critical to ICLC’s ability to serve our clients.

Pro Bono Spotlight: Learn about some of our superstar lawyer volunteers.

Trainings: During special times, ICLC provides substantive CLE trainings, both live and online. Most of our training opportunities are focused on attorneys and paralegals interested in assisting with pro bono matters. We also conduct presentations about housing and homeless issues and about our various projects. We often are able to customize trainings and presentations to meet your specific needs. Contact the office to inquire about special training – 213.891.2880.

Volunteer / Internships: ICLC has volunteer opportunities for law students, undergraduate students, lawyers, paralegals, and other professionals to work with us on various cases, projects, and administrative activities in our office. Volunteers and interns work closely with ICLC staff and enable us to serve even more clients.

Walking Tours: ICLC conducts regular walking tours of our offices and our Skid Row neighborhood to illustrate our housing and homelessness work and to provide a better understanding of homelessness in Los Angeles. The tours can be emotionally difficult, but reveal an often ignored side of Los Angeles, while highlighting the importance of ICLC’s services and policy advocacy.

Fellowships: ICLC sponsors Equal Justice Works, Skadden, Soros, and other fellowship candidates with projects related to our practice areas and mission for law students and recent graduates considering fellowship applications.

Donate Now: ICLC depends upon your generous financial support. None of our housing and homelessness work would be possible without your donations.
