Event description
Identify and learn best practices and innovative, practical approaches to using the legal system to advance justice for low-income clients.

About this Event

Pathways to Justice is a statewide conference convened every three years by the State Bar of California, in partnership with the Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC) and the Judicial Council Center for Families, Children & the Courts(CFCC).

Pathways is California’s only statewide legal services conference, bringing together non-profit legal services providers, private bar pro bono, and staff from key court departments and self-help centers, for training on best practices and practical problem-solving, as well as information-sharing on trends and challenges in the ongoing effort to improve the administration of justice. Pathways’ two days of substantive workshops and demonstrations will be invaluable for any legal professional seeking to ensure that the legal system is accessible and responsive to all Californians.

The next Pathways to Justice Conference will be held on June 4 and 5, 2019, with preconference sessions on June 3 on Disaster Preparedness and Response, and for Judicial Council programming for court staff.
