Community Law Project

California Supreme Court Justice Ming W. Chin with JusticeCorps student volunteersThe Community Law Project (CLP) is a non-profit, student-led organization at UC San Diego that will work with undergraduate students to become more involved in law-related, community service in historically marginalized communities while preparing themselves for law school and beyond.

CLP was created to provide students with professional development, training and education necessary to prepare them for a legal career devoted to fighting for social justice. Our goal is to make UC San Diego students aware of social, political and legal issues that continue to impact historically marginalized communities, as well as to provide students with the opportunity to acquire practical experience through legal organizations and local community advocacy groups.
