Green-Collar Communities Clinic

The East Bay Community Law Center needs volunteer lawyers for its business-focused clinic.


This practice group of the East Bay Community Law Center needs pro bono transactional attorneys, including those specializing in contract, corporate, employment, and real estate law.


The program is focused on supporting small businesses, social enterprises, and nonprofits in the East Bay, especially those serving low-income workers and members of co-ops in impoverished areas.


Attorneys are needed to advise new business owners on hiring and payroll practices, record keeping, employee audits, managing independent contractors, and other employment matters. They also may advise nonprofit boards on employment and tax-exemption compliance matters. And they're needed to advise on purchase agreements, real estate matters, and contracts with vendors, suppliers, and public agencies.


The four-year-old program has helped more than 500 community members.


Contact Sushil C. Jacob, staff attorney and director of the Green-Collar Communities Clinic, at or 510-269-6611.
