Students will staff LiveHelp, an online, real-time chat service that will direct users toward relevant self-help materials, legal assistance organizations and court information. Volunteers will receive several hours of training on the LiveHelp software and in handling common questions using the resources on LawHelp/NY and the websites of New York State Courts. If you are interested in attending the training, please complete the online LiveHelp Volunteer Questionnaire by Sunday, January 21st, 2018. Additionally, please email your resume to Allana Benton at [email protected] and note that you have completed the online questionnaire.
This project is open to JD's and LLM's and qualifies for both the CLS mandatory requirement (for 2 & 3Ls; voluntary for 1Ls) and the NY state bar requirement.
