The Consumer Justice & General Clinic provides brief services to low-income consumers facing a wide variety of issues, including debt collection, student loans, credit reporting, predatory lending, identity theft, and consumer scams through legal clinics and appointments. Consumer issues are those that are related to debt and financial problems stemming from personal, household, or family use. The Consumer Justice Clinic also pursues state policy initiatives that address the most significant challenges faced by low-income consumers, particularly immigrants and those with language barriers. As a clinic of Berkeley Law, we provide these free services to qualified Alameda County residents with the help of law students and volunteers who are trained and supervised by experienced staff attorneys. Currently, all services are provided remotely with the expectation that we will resume in-person services when it is safe for our community to do so. Until then, please check out our eligibility below or click here to fill out an intake form to get started.
Please note – Our clinic unfortunately, doesn’t have the capacity to support with any of the following issues: Foreclosures, probate/trust issues, tax issues, municipal fine and fees, municipal fees for juvenile, insurance support, employment, mortgage issues, housing issues not in litigation for back rent, discrimination, or police misconduct
The Consumer Justice & General Clinic runs a General Legal Clinic, where low-income Alameda County residents can get information and advice regarding a wide variety of legal issues.
