What is BALI?

Learn about us, our community of attorneys and our team.


BALI Bay Area Legal Incubator is a project of Alameda County Bar Association and Volunteer Legal Services Corporation in collaboration with five San Francisco Bay Area law schools and the Alameda County Law Library.

We are a community of solo attorneys dedicated to providing affordable legal services and promoting social justice.

BALI is not a law firm.  We are social-mission community (with a physical hub and online network) for individual, California-licensed attorneys committed to serving people of modest economic means. Each individual attorney operates her or his own, distinct and independent practice. No legal representation relationship exists in any way between BALI and any of the clients or prospective clients of the attorneys within our community and/or any user of this website and BALI or any of its affiliates.

BALI provides a two-year program to help attorneys accelerate the launch of solo practices serving low-and middle-income clients in a wide spectrum of practice areas. Local communities benefit from access to legal assistance. Attorneys benefit from a shared community and office space, free resources, mentoring and training in emerging best practices and technology.
