East Palo Alto
Based in East Palo Alto, a low-income community four miles from the law school campus, the Community Law Clinic is the closest thing to a traditional legal services office among Stanford’s clinical offerings. The signature feature of the CLC is its off-campus location, which gives students the unique opportunity to work in a community-based, storefront, legal aid office.
Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) provides legal assistance to low-income individuals and families in East Palo Alto and the surrounding community. Our practice areas include immigration, housing, and economic advancement.
The East Palo Alto Fair Rent Coalition, a non-profit coalition of tenants and concerned community members, was established in July 2008 and is dedicated to protecting East Palo Alto's tenants, families, and affordable housing. The coalition was founded on the belief that a healthy democracy requires transparency and the active participation of informed citizens.
