Community Law Corps

Improving the quality of life of neighborhoods is a key priority for Los Angeles City Attorney Hydee Feldstein Soto. The Community Law Corps ("CLC"), a new division within the City Attorney's Municipal Law Branch, serves as the first point of contact for L.A. residents. 

Comprised of attorneys and legal professionals with years of experience in civil and criminal law, the CLC takes preventative and proactive measures to address a variety of issues that affect neighborhoods and establishes partnerships to resolve problems that enforcement, alone, cannot adequately address. Collaborating with community members, city departments, outside government agencies and law enforcement partners, the CLC identifies and resolves challenging legal issues faced by many city neighborhoods. Additionally, this division identifies emerging concerns and works with City Hall to address them.
