The Muslim Community Association Legal Clinic was established in May 2005 through a partnership with the Pro Bono Project of Silicon Valley’s “Lawyers in the Library” program. This is the first clinic of its kind ever established in the Muslim American community.
The legal clinic continues to provide free 20-minute consultation sessions with attorneys on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. Approximately 25 attorneys volunteer at the clinic on a rotating basis.
