Los Angeles JusticeCorps

Government agency

Description

The Los Angeles Region JusticeCorps program presents an innovative approach to solving one of the more pressing issues faced by courts around the country today: providing equal access to justice. Los Angeles JusticeCorps recruits and trains 150 diverse undergraduate university students and recent college graduates annually to augment overburdened court and legal aid staff who are assisting self-represented litigants in court-based self-help programs in select locations throughout Los Angeles County. These highly motivated and well-trained volunteers provide in-depth and individualized services to self-represented litigants, often in their own languages. Parties are given clear information and options, and then connected quickly to the right resources. Litigants are assisted in completing appropriate and accurate pleadings, written orders, and judgments under attorney supervision and, in the process, provided with a better understanding of the court system. JusticeCorps members commit to serving 300-1700 hours in the self-help centers, as well as, an education award when they complete the program. JusticeCorps is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network. Funds are provided by CaliforniaVolunteers, the California Administrative Office of the Courts, and the Los Angeles Superior Court.
