What Is VLSC?

The Alameda County Bar Association Volunteer Legal Services Corporation (VLSC) provides free legal assistance to low-income and poor people in Alameda County with certain non-criminal legal issues.

The Alameda County Bar Association began its Volunteer Legal Services Program in 1982, and it was incorporated in 1985 as the Volunteer Legal Services Corporation, a tax-exempt charitable corporation. VLSC is governed by an independent board of directors.
