The Employment Unit of The Legal Aid Society has partnered with the Columbia Law Worker's Rights Student Coalition to create a pro bono opportunity. Volunteers will complete discrete research assignments remotely or at the Legal Aid Office. The research assignments will range in content and all will be immediately useful to the unit in its endeavors. Tasks may include investigating developments in the city, state, and federal levels of employment law and updating "Know Your Rights" materials for workers in New York City.
This project is open to JDs and LL.M.s and qualifies for both the CLS mandatory requirement (for 2 & 3Ls; voluntary for 1Ls) and the NY state bar requirement.
