Community Law Clinic

Outreach and Policy-level Projects

In addition to individual client matters, CLC students work on outreach or policy-level projects, such as community education workshops at sites around the mid-Peninsula, performing legal research on a policy initiative for a local non-profit, and/or legislative research and advocacy, all with the goal of leveraging the Clinic's work on individual cases into change that benefits low-income people more broadly. Recent policy projects include drafting changes to East Palo Alto's rent control regulations, advising a local day worker center on its proposal to issue ID cards to affiliated workers, drafting proposed changes to the local Housing Authority's policy manual regarding the Section 8 program to increase access to the program, and testifying ins upport of a proposed amendment to the California Labor Code regarding retaliaton against workers whose family members file labor standards complaints.
