CJP Office Hours: Monday — Friday, 10 AM to 11:30 AM & 1 PM to 2:30 PM

The Community Justice Program (CJP), the pro bono project of the San Antonio Bar Association, provides free legal services to pre-qualified individuals who may not otherwise have access to the legal system.

Through community clinics, the CJP provides meaningful access to legal advice, assistance, and education to low-income residents of greater San Antonio.

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. With the help of local volunteers including judges, attorneys, paralegals, notaries, and law students, the CJP strives to improve access and close the justice gap.

To date, we have matched almost 10,000 pro bono cases to volunteer attorneys.
