Administrative Office of the Courts
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
The JusticeCorps program addresses a vital need--increasing access to justice for all, especially low-income and non-native English speakers trying to resolve family law, civil, or small claims case without the assistance of a lawyer. JusticeCorps members are placed in legal access self-help centers, where they provide information and referrals, assist in completion of forms, and help people navigate the entire court process. Since 2004, 600 members have served over 100,000 Californians.
