Legal Clinic for the Homeless Pro Bono Training

Start/End Wednesday, September 18, 2013 06:00 PM EDT -- 08:30 PM EDT
Location Name JG 546

The City Bar Justice Center invites 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs to join the pro bono Legal Clinic for the Homeless. Students will have the opportunity to work with attorneys from the City Bar Justice Center and other CLS students to assist New York City's homeless families, and those at risk of homelessness, in securing state and federal public benefits. Students will help to resolve various legal issues related to public assistance, immigration, employment, and family law. As a City Bar Justice Center volunteer, you will be assigned a client as an advocate. In the past, students have represented clients before administrative law judges in state fair hearings proceedings. This will also count towards your mandatory CLS pro bono requirement. If you are interested in learning more, please contact 2L Courtney Chin at cjc2105@columbia.edu.  For more information: http://www2.nycbar.org/citybarjusticecenter/images/stories/publications/homeless-report.pdf
