Description The JusticeCorps program presents an innovative approach to solving one of the more pressing issues faced by our courts today: providing equal access to justice. JusticeCorps recruits and trains university students annually to serve in legal self-help programs throughout Los Angeles County. JusticeCorps participants receive intensive training throughout the year so they can provide in-depth legal services to self-represented litigants (individuals who represent themselves before the court), often in their own languages, under the supervision of an attorney. If interested, please visit the JusticeCorps website.
