About Us

The mission of the Berkeley Law Foundation (BLF) is to fund new lawyers and innovative public interest law projects that serve disadvantaged people. BLF members invest directly in the public interest work of our peers, emphasizing a shared-income approach to social change. We make this choice because we recognize that lawyers have a personal and professional responsibility to dismantle inequalities and to improve access to justice. Recognizing that the responsibility to challenge systemic inequality applies equally to the structure of our organization, BLF incorporates diversity as a core value.

Our approach to funding public interest law, first established by BLF in 1976, empowers lawyers to pursue careers in the public interest, launches creative public interest projects and organizations, provides legal services to thousands of disadvantaged people, and deploys the power of the law in the service of social justice.
