We also support the National Association for Public Interest Law fellowship program.

Lieff Cabraser’s Additional Community Sponsorships

For over 20 years, Lieff Cabraser sponsored the radio series "Perspectives," airing on the public broadcasting station KQED-FM in the San Francisco Bay Area. The series offers listeners social and political opinion on a broad spectrum of contemporary issues. While we are no longer the program’s sponsor, we remain committed to sponsoring public radio. We are sponsoring a wide variety of programs on KQED-FM in 2015.

In 2007, Lieff Cabraser attorneys assisted in the launching of the Carver HEARTS Project. The project is a partnership among interested community members, George Washington Carver Elementary School in San Francisco, and UCSF’s Department of Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. The project provides a therapist skilled in treating trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on-site at Carver Elementary School.

In addition to the above-listed organizations, Lieff Cabraser supports the following:

We have been honored to receive the 2005 AIDS Legal Referral Panel “Firm of the Year” award and the 1998 Navigator of Civil Rights Award presented by the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
