Give back to the community! Learn family law! The San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, Inc. runs a family law assistance clinic and is looking for attorney volunteers. All levels of experience are welcome! This is an opportunity to make new friends and find emotional fulfillment by helping others in need.

New attorneys receive mentoring and training by more experienced attorneys. This is a great way to build up  your resume and make professional contacts in the legal profession. You also gain invaluable work experience by assisting clients during the clinic with the option of taking family law cases on a limited scope basis.

We need experienced family law attorneys too. Lend us your expertise to help low-income San Diegans; provide mentorship to newer family law practitioners; or take a pro bono family law case on a limited scope basis. This experience will provide you with a great sense of achievement and satisfaction.
Volunteers may attend free one-hour MCLE family law trainings prior to each clinic. The clinic is held every Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:30 pm at our downtown location. For more information, contact Kris Jacobs at
