LAS-ELC Provides Free Legal Assistance to Workers in Hanford
March 24, 2014

Last week, LAS-ELC and students from the University of Southern California Law School travelled to Hanford, California as part of the Mobile Workers’ Rights Clinic in order to provide free legal services to a variety of low-income residents and educate them about their rights. 

The trip was sponsored by OneJustice’s University of Southern California Justice Bus Trip Project in partnership with LAS-ELC, Central California Legal Services, Kings Community Action Organization (in Madera) and Lang, Richert & Patch. 

LAS-ELC attorney Mike Gaitley said that the trip represented an excellent opportunity for the Mobile Workers’ Rights Clinic to travel directly to a location and community previously unserved by LAS-ELC, and to work for the first time alongside law students from USC.
