Education and Legal Support

As a primary resource and support center in California, CWLC develops guidance documents and tools, while also coordinating outreach trainings. We serve as an expert resource by supporting qualified legal services projects (QLSPs) serving indigent clients statewide, and providing technical assistance to individuals, legal services offices, community organizations, and pro bono attorneys. CWLC also offers trainings for QLSPs, as well as advocates, legal professionals, school personnel, stakeholders, and the general public on a wide range of issues affecting women and girls and their pursuit of justice. Many of these trainings are approved for Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit and include topics such as gender equality in school athletics, lactation accommodations and equal pay.
