"Civic Legal Corps (CLC) is a breath of fresh air for our justice system. Started by young lawyers for young lawyers, CLC will ensure more underserved Americans access to justice while creating much needed job opportunities for the legal community. Importantly, CLC is also committed to innovation and social enterprise, two qualities our legal sector desperately needs. NoVo Foundation is proud to support Civic Legal Corps and encourages others to do the same."
- Peter Buffett, Co-Chair, NoVo Foundation
"I support Civic Legal Corps' commitment to provide access to legal services for low and moderate income people, while offering sustainable opportunities for young attorneys - many of whom are struggling with challenging student loan debt and a difficult job market - to serve communities that desperately need our help."
- Martha L. Minow, Dean, Harvard Law School
