Welcome to our Volunteer Program!

We need your help in our quest to provide more services to more people and to reach out to the entire San Diego community.  Our newly created Volunteer Program will be a win-win for our volunteers and for us.  Make your pro bono hours count for us and you’ll help add strength to our promise of providing access to justice. Law students — you can build your resume learning valuable skills working with our outreach team and Information Desk staff.  Library students — you can experience librarianship in a law library environment.


You can be part of the Law Library All-Star team whether you are a veteran in the legal profession or just getting started — we have volunteer opportunities for you.  Not in the legal profession?  That’s all right, we encourage community participation.  Our program is designed to match you to departments with volunteer opportunities that benefit both you and us.


All volunteers get to wear a shiny red, white and black pin while working at the library — sort of like the STUDENT DRIVER sign on the cars you see weaving down the highway.  After putting in enough hours to qualify, volunteers get to choose from a vast array of San Diego Law Library shwag to show off to your friends and neighbors.  There is nothing like having Star, the Law Library Dog, barking from your t-shirt: “JOIN US!”star the law library dog


If you are interested in participating in our Volunteer Program, please fill out this Volunteer Application form.  You can return your completed application form to or any one of locations.  We will contact you within the week. WOOF!
