Bold Idea 

Provide desperately-needed legal services to the low-income community in the areas of housing, welfare, HIV & health, homelessness and economic development, while also educating law students to make these future lawyers aware of and skilled in addressing the needs of indigent communities.


Laura Lane joined EBCLC as a supervising attorney in 1997 and directs the Housing practice. As a law student Laura worked in EBCLC’s Health practice, at the Legal Aid Society of Alameda County, and at the American Civil Liberties Union. A recipient of an echoing green Public Interest Fellowship, in 1996 Laura founded and directed a project providing free legal services to people living with HIV/AIDS in Contra Costa County. Laura has taught housing law and policy at Boalt Hall School of Law and at Golden Gate University, School of Law. In 2003, she was honored at a reception in San Francisco by Housing Rights, Inc. in recognition of her contributions to fair housing in the East Bay.
