Public Counsel + Loyola CARES

Loyola CARES provides law students with an ability to advocate for those in need while obtaining real world advocacy experience. Students will visit Los Angeles County Department of Social Services (DPSS) locations to advocate for applicants of general relief and food stamps. Loyola Cares is a Pro Bono project for practicing attorneys and law students, coordinated by Public Counsel. Advocates must attend a one‐hour training session, held at various times during the semester, to become ‘certified’ for Loyola Cares trips.
