Legal aid organizations are non-profits that provide legal representation to people that couldn't otherwise afford it in circumstances like bankruptcy, divorce, domestic violence, immigration, and landlord-tenant disputes. It is my understanding that most these organizations rely on a mix of paid staff, probono attorneys, and volunteer interns. An example of such an organization is Community Legal Services.
