The East Bay Community Law Center was founded in 1988 by law students from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law. The student founders were motivated by the intersection of significant trends in legal services and legal education. EBCLC's mission is to promote justice and build a community that is more healthy, secure, productive and hopeful by providing: legal services and policy advocacy that are responsive to the needs of low-income communities, and law training that prepares future attorneys to be skilled and principled advocates that are committed to finding innovative solutions to the cause and conditions of poverty. [Gift Year: 2017]
