NYCLA members in good standing can volunteer to provide counseling to individuals seeking advice in the areas of family law, landlord-tenant law, and employment law at our Legal Counseling Project evening clinics. No representation of any kind is undertaken. Individuals are prepared during the clinics for pro se representation. You may be asked to review documents, answer questions, discuss areas of concern that the individual should be aware of when entering into certain agreements, point out various methods whereby the individual can either correct a problem or seek appropriate assistance and direction. Mentors, who are experts in the three practice areas, are available by phone on each clinic night to assist the volunteer attorneys.

You must attend both training sessions commit to counsel clients one night per month from October 2019 through June 2020 in order to receive CLE Credit upon completion of the commitment. You will be covered under NYCLA’s malpractice insurance policy.

FREE for NYCLA members only. Non-members may not participate
