NYLAG One-Day Legal Clinic Pro Bono Opportunities for May 2017
NYLAG routinely offers one-day legal clinics in the community to address urgent and other large-scale needs. Participants undergo training in the legal issues addressed in the clinic and are supervised by NYLAG staff attorneys. NYLAG has several different one-day legal clinic volunteer opportunities available. Pro bono attorneys, law grads and law students and interpreters are welcome to participate. All NYLAG One-Day Legal Clinics will count toward the 50-hour pro bono requirement for admission to the New York State Bar.

Due to space limitations, we can only accommodate the indicated number of volunteers at each site, so we cannot accept everyone who might be interested in participating on a given day. ***Please wait for confirmation before making plans to go to a site. Only volunteers who are confirmed for clinics will be contacted. If you do not receive a confirmation email, it means we were unable to offer you a volunteer slot for the requested date(s).***

Anyone who has questions about volunteering may contact me directly at volunteer@nylag.org

MOBILE LEGAL HELP CENTER (MLHC) INTAKE CLINICS
The Mobile Legal Help Center (MLHC) is the country’s first-ever legal services office and courtroom on wheels. On the MLHC, NYLAG staff provide counseling, advice, and direct representation on a variety of legal issues—from public benefits, family and matrimonial law, employment law, immigration and more—without leaving the vehicle. A video link with the courts enables access to judges for emergency hearings, including domestic violence and eviction cases.

NYLAG staff will be conducting legal clinics aboard the MLHC on the dates listed below. We invite participation from volunteer attorneys, law graduates and law students to help us provide legal services. Volunteers conduct intake interviews with MLHC visitors, and provide information and brief advice on a variety of legal issues. All volunteers are supervised by a NYLAG staff attorney who assists with evaluation of the legal issues raised during intake, and provides any guidance and support volunteers may need. Volunteers will have access to a recording of a webinar training on the MLHC intake process and will be sent training materials and intake guides.

If you are an attorney interested in participating in the MLHC, please describe your current practice area and any practice areas in which you feel comfortable advising clients.
