CHANGELAWYERS℠ is a statewide foundation that empowers the next generation of lawyers, judges, and activists.
These changemakers--we call them changelawyers--are the ones who right historical wrongs in our courtrooms, classrooms, and beyond. Through them, we can deliver the original American value: Justice for All.
California ChangeLawyers was founded in 1989 by the State Bar of California as California Bar Foundation. In 2015, California Bar Foundation became an independent organization and in 2018, it changed names to California ChangeLawyers. Through the organization's history, its mission has never changed: build a better justice system for all Californians.
