Pro Bono (Limited Means) Opportunities at Legal Aid

Are you interested in pursuing a career in Public Interest Law? Are the reasons you decided to go to law school mostly about wanting to help people? Consider interning with Community Legal Aid’s Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP).

Community Legal Aid is the sole provider of legal assistance to low income individuals in an eight county area. The Volunteer Legal Services Program is a program within Community Legal Aid that works very closely with private attorneys providing them with a number of volunteer opportunities. Students volunteering for the VLSP can work in several areas: Consumer Law including our Bankruptcy project and Peace of Mind Bankruptcy Bypass clinic, Simple Contract law and Simple Estate Planning.

NOTE: Students are required to volunteer a minimum of five (5) hours. Students generally either come in once a week, and volunteer longer or they choose to come in twice a week for shorter amounts of time; generally 3hrs. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm. We are closed Saturday and Sunday. We ask that your volunteer availability be during those hours.
If interested, please contact VLSP Staff Attorney, Carla Boyle Small, at cboylesmall@communitylegalaid.org
