The New York State Courts Access to Justice Program seeks law students to provide pro bono service in its Consumer Debt Program for unrepresented Consumer Debtors appearing in Civil Court. The work would involve research on updating the court’s online information for defendants in Consumer Debt matters.
To apply, email a resume to Laurie Milder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: This is posted as an opportunity to perform volunteer legal work. Whether the work qualifies toward the New York State Bar 50-hour pro bono requirement is a determination made on a case-by-case basis by the Character and Fitness Committee that processes bar admission applications.
