Mission Statement: The Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC), the statewide membership organization of legal services nonprofits, serves and strengthens its members through advocacy, training, and support in their efforts to provide critical legal assistance to low-income Californians and ensure equal access to justice.
History: LAAC was founded by legal services programs in the early 1980s, in response to a community-wide resolution that a statewide legal services organization was needed to help programs collaborate and coordinate on issues of mutual concern. Over the past two decades, LAAC has remained true to its core mission to act as the unified voice for the legal services community, ensure a forum for legal services programs to coordinate, and provide high-quality training for legal services advocates.
