The Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP) at Community Legal Aid is seeking a law student who is interested in volunteering with our Pro Se Family law program as well as our Hot-Docs project in Spring 2018. Our office is closed for the Holiday break from December 22nd until January 1st so we would anticipate a commencement date of sometime in middle to late January. The law student will be focused on strengthening and expanding our Pro Se Family law program by reviewing and updating client packets, updating information concerning court contacts, procedures and resources and incorporating the use of Hot Docs to streamline the clinic process. We are asking for a commitment of 3-6 hours a week. Our offices are open Monday through Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate evening or weekend volunteering.
Please email Carla Boyle Small at email@example.com if you are interested. Thanks!

If you are interested in the project, please e-mail Professor Joann Sahl, firstname.lastname@example.org.
