Lawyers Helping People
Potential Clients / Attorney Volunteers / 2017 Clinic Calendar
The Community Justice Program (“CJP”) is the pro bono project of the San Antonio Bar Association. The CJP provides free neighborhood-based legal services to individuals who may not otherwise have access to the legal system.
It is alarming that fewer than 20 percent of low-income residents of South Texas can obtain access to legal assistance when faced with a civil problem. That means four out of five people arrive at the courthouse door to find they cannot afford the price of admission. Through our volunteers’ generous donation of their time, the CJP is striving to make a difference in those numbers. The CJP also hosts an annual Golf Tournament fundraiser in the spring.
To date, we have matched more than 8,500 pro bono cases to volunteer attorneys.
