Free The Land Project

Free the Land Project (FTLP) will provide direct services to organizations by helping to navigate city processes involved in land, housing, and environmental justice; as well as dissecting legislation to build mutual understanding of how it can be used as a tool for organizer goals. We will also work to identify the legislative gaps that exist in addressing the on-the-ground needs of communities to figure out where there may be room to propose new legislation.

This project seeks to provide support to grassroots organizers in their land, housing, and environmental justice goals. We want to provide opportunities for Berkeley Law students to engage with BIPOC-led organizations in the Bay Area fighting for the liberation rights of the most vulnerable communities.

Supervision: Students will receive training from and provide pro bono legal services under the supervision of attorneys at Goldfarb Lipman.

Time Commitment: Minimum of 10 – 15 hours a semester
