Bridging The Justice Gap | Closing The Jobs Gap
A national social enterprise fellowship program for young attorneys
The selection process for the inaugural class of Civic Legal Corps Fellows is now underway! Stay tuned for updates.
Civic Legal Corps was recently selected as a semi-finalist for the prestigious Echoing Green Global Fellowship! We're equally honored to have received a two-year grant from Peter and Jennifer Buffett's NoVo Foundation, generous financial support from the Terry and Suzan Kramer Family Foundation, Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP, the Roy and Niuta Titus Foundation, as well as contributions from numerous individual donors. We look forward to partnering with these innovative organizations and individuals to make justice accessible for low and moderate income Americans!
Additionally, CLC is deeply honored to have received the support of Harvard Law School Dean Martha L. Minow, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (Ret.) and other leaders in the law, innovation, and social entrepreneurship who have expressed interest in and admiration for our work.

"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."
