Pro Bono Net Announces “Virtual Open House” for NYC Pro Bono Attorneys on Oct. 27
Pro Bono Net will host a “virtual open house” during National Pro Bono Celebraton Week to introduce New York City-area attorneys to pro bono opportunities with some of the area’s leading legal aid programs.
The virtual open house is part of Pro Bono Net’s Pro Bono in New York webinar series, which makes it easier for attorneys to get involved in pro bono by introducing them to local opportunities and providing the training they need to get started. Each hour-long webinar allows participants to hear from experts from Pro Bono Net’s legal aid partners who specialize in working with, and providing support to, pro bono attorneys.
Participants in the 3 pm webinar on Oct 27 will hear about a wide range of opportunities available for attorneys looking to get involved in pro bono work throughout the five boroughs and seven counties of the Hudson Valley. Featured organizations provide assistance to income-eligible clients in areas of housing, family law, public benefits and employment law, and offer attorneys opportunities to practice in venues ranging from state administrative hearings to federal courts. They include:
• MFY Legal Services, Inc.
• The Urban Justice Center
• Legal Services of the Hudson Valley
• The Legal Aid Society
Participants will also receive an overview of the many resources available on probono.net/
The Pro Bono in New York series will continue November 17 with a presentation by the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyer's Project on Article 17A guardianship proceedings for individuals with disabilities.
