OCLC is an incubator program for new attorneys who wish to start their own solo law practice.
OCLC is a collaborative effort between four of the Orange County non-profit legal services firms: Community Legal Aid SoCal, Veteran’s Legal Institute, Public Law Center, and the Elder Law and Disability Rights Center. Applications are open to any licensed California Attorney with priority given to 2021 and 2022 graduates.
