Program Overview (from the program website):

The JusticeCorps program is an innovative approach to solving one of the more pressing issues faced by courts around the country today: providing equal access to justice. JusticeCorps recruits and trains 250 diverse university students annually to serve in overburdened legal self-help centers throughout California. First launched as a pilot program in Los Angeles County in 2004, JusticeCorps expanded to the Bay Area in fall 2006, to San Diego in fall 2007, and to the Sacramento Capitol Region in fall 2010. Minimum-time members commit to serving a minimum of 300 hours during an academic year in self-help centers. In return, they receive approximately 30 hours of training as well as a $1,132 education award when they complete the program. The program also offers a select number of full-time service opportunities in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and San Diego. Full-time members serve 1,700 hours and receive a $20,000 living allowance dispensed throughout their one-year term of service, as well as a $5,350 education award.
