La Raza Workers’ and Tenants’ Rights Clinic

Students assist tenants and workers in one-on-one meetings under attorney supervision at Centro Legal de La Raza, a legal services organization that advances the rights of working-class immigrant communities in Fruitvale. Students will conduct intakes where they will screen for legal issues in the areas of employment and housing rights, identify and propose solutions for the client, and draft legal documents as necessary. Students might also have the opportunity to represent a client with housing issues in front of an administrative judge. 

Time Commitment: Students have to participate in a minimum of 5 clinics per semester. The clinic is every Thursday from 6pm to 10pm at Centro Legal de La Raza in Oakland. Centro Legal works with low-income immigrant communities since it was founded by Boalt students in 1969.
