We are looking for students to volunteer from 9:45a-12:45p on Saturday, July 19th. The clinic will be held at Fortis College, Cuyahoga Falls. The time you volunteer can be applied toward your graduation requirement as pro bono limited means hours.

 

There will be a volunteer training on Friday, July 18, 4:45-6:00p at the law school. The time you’re at training will count toward your pro bono limited means hours as well.
