The Pathways to Justice Conference is a statewide conference convened every three years by the State Bar of California, in partnership with its co-sponsors, the Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC) and the Equal Access Project of the Judicial Council (EAP/JC). LAAC and the State Bar of California work with a network of nearly 100 legal services nonprofits funded by the State Bar. Pathways is the only statewide legal services conference in California that allows legal services organizations, pro bono organizations, and court-based programs; private law firm attorneys; judges; law school faculty and pro bono administrators; law students; court interpreters and others in California an opportunity to come together for two days of substantive trainings on issues that affect the state's low-income communities. The possibility of holding the conference at the The California Endowment, Center for Healthy Communities will result in affordable registration fees and encourage participants from smaller, low-budget programs to attend.
Legal services, pro bono, court-based program and LRS staff, judges, pro bono attorneys, board members, law school practitioners, law students, small claims advisors, law librarians, court interpreters, paralegals, and other justice partners. The programming offered at Pathways to Justice is rich and diverse--there is something for EVERYONE!
