Neighborhood Legal Clinics Committee
The Neighborhood Legal Clinics program began in 1974 when three young and energetic attorneys opened the first clinic in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood in Seattle. Thanks to many amazing volunteers, and the support of a dedicated Committee, the program has grown to 37 clinics utilizing over 600 volunteer attorneys and clinic assistants. With just a small amount of staff support, the program relies on the Committee to assist with strategic planning, policy decisions, and special projects focused on enhancing existing services.
NLC volunteers and community members contribute their skills and expertise to strengthen this vibrant and growing program. Contact Riana Nolet, Neighborhood Legal Clinics Program Manager for more information: RianaN@KCBA.org
