    First Monday Night Law 2015-2016 clinic, Oct. 5.
    • Location: New York
    • Organization: NYC Bar Association and City Bar Justice Center
    • Contact: Monday Night Law MondayNightLaw@gmail.com

    The Opportunity

    The NYC Bar Association’s Committee for Legal Services for Persons of Moderate Means, in conjunction with the City Bar Justice Center, is seeking volunteer attorneys to staff the Monday Night Law clinic, which begins its 26th year in September.

    Monday Night Law is designed to address the public’s need for affordable and accessible legal assistance by providing clinics every Monday evening at the Association in which volunteers meet with clients who have been screened by the Association’s Legal Referral Service, which coordinates Monday Night Law’s scheduling.

    About Monday Night Law

    Monday Night Law is a community service program providing free consultations with volunteer lawyers. Volunteer lawyers will offer advice related to the following legal topics only:

    • Employer and Employee Law
    • Divorce, Matrimonial and Family Law
    • Bankruptcy
    • Consumer Law
    • Landlord-Tenant
    • Small Business Matters

    During 30-minute appointments, the clients and attorneys discuss problems in the areas of housing, employment, family law, consumer law, small business, and personal bankruptcy. The volunteers do not take any cases, but will distribute materials and provide explanations and suggestions to help clients understand and find solutions to their legal problems on their own, or, where appropriate, and make referrals for representation back to the Legal Referral Service or other legal services providers.

    Monday Night Law is provided by the Committees for Legal Services for Persons of Moderate Means and the Legal Referral Service. The Legal Referral Service is jointly sponsored by the New York City Bar Association and New York County Lawyers’ Association. This program is designed to address the public’s ever-increasing need for affordable and accessible legal guidance and assists nearly 1,000 New Yorkers annually.

    Requirements

    No prior experience in the topics covered is necessary. To participate in the program, volunteer attorneys must:

    (1) be admitted to practice in New York, and

    (2) have been practicing law for at least two years in the public sector, private practice, as in-house counsel, or in some other capacity, or have had some significant related experience.

    There are limited intern and staff roles for non-admitted attorneys.

    Volunteers with a secondary language skill are strongly encouraged to apply.

    Training

    Volunteers must:

    • attend two training sessions in September, held at the NYC Bar Association; and
    • commit to attend the clinic one Monday evening per month from October 2015 through August 2016.  

    Continuing legal education credit is available upon completing the requirements for the trainings and attendance at the Monday Night Law clinics; pro bono CLE credit is also available for the Monday Night Law clinic work.

    Key dates 

     

    • Attorney profile application forms due Friday, Sept. 4.
    • Training dates are Monday, Sept. 21, and Monday, Sept. 28, from 5:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the NYC Bar Association.

    Enforcing Wage Claims for Low-Income Workers

    Presented by

    State wage and hour laws were a Progressive Era reform that initially met fierce resistance from industry and the United States Supreme Court, most famously in Lochner v. New York, which invalidated New York’s law prescribing maximum working hours for bakery employees. In 1937, however, the Supreme Court narrowly changed its course, upholding Washington State’s minimum wage law by a 5-4 vote in West Coast Hotel Company v. Parrish. This paved the way for enactment of the first federal minimum wage law, the Fair Labor Standards Act, in 1938. 

    Today, wage and hour laws are among the most fundamental of worker protections, but violations of these laws are rampant. Low-income workers are particularly vulnerable, and violations of worker protection laws are common in low-wage labor markets. 

    Karen Cacace is the Supervising Attorney and Young Woo Lee is a staff attorney at The Legal Aid Society Employment Law Unit. They will give an overview of federal wage and hour laws and the discussion will include: 

    • The legal framework and basics of the wage and hour laws
    • Exceptions and limitations to wage and hour laws
    • Common legal issues, including identifying who is an employer and who is an employee
    • Investigating and litigating wage and hour claims 

    Don’t miss this important free briefing.

    Immigration Navigator Training (full day training):

    Intended primarily for non-attorneys, particularly staff and volunteers of organizations with little or no legal capacity, this training will provide instruction on the basics of immigration law, policy, and history, information-sharing best practices, document/evidence gathering, and general outreach strategies. Leaving this training, participants will be able to assist in the case management aspects of a variety of immigration cases, including naturalization, TPS, DACA, and generalized immigration legal consultations.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The New York Immigrant Assistance Consortium (NYIAC)

    This training is being jointly conducted by The New York Immigrant Assistance Consortium (“NYIAC”), a coalition of immigrant-serving non-profit organizations and other key stakeholders committed to providing high-quality assistance to immigrants in New York State.  NYIAC believes that the coordination of efforts among New York’s immigrant-serving organizations will enable those organizations to:

    §  reach the most people;
    §  provide services in the most cost-effective manner;
    §  minimize fraud; and
    §  assure that immigrants are receiving the highest quality assistance that protects them and advances their rights.

    We ask that those participating in this training become members of this coordinated effort and make a commitment to embrace the following principles:

    NYIAC Statement of Principles

    · Outreach and Education: Engage in coordinated NYIAC outreach programs designed to increase NYIAC membership and provide relevant populations with information regarding changes in immigration laws and policies;

    ·  Open-source: Promote information and resource-sharing among NYIAC members pertaining to education, training, outreach, data collection and analyses related to legislative and executive actions;

    · Best Practices: Coordinate with other NYIAC members to develop, implement and use innovative and efficient legal and social service models that promote best practices;

    · Technological Effectiveness: Coordinate with other NYIAC members to develop, implement and use technological tools to expand the reach and effectiveness of immigrant services;

    · Training :Help create, implement and use training and educational programs for service providers regarding immigration law and policy;

    · Capacity-building: Commit to receive trainings and work towards building the capacity of member organizations in order to serve larger and more diverse immigrant populations;

    · Excellence: Provide a consistent and high level of services to the immigrant populations they serve;

    · Anti-fraud: Work to minimize incidences of immigration fraud and unauthorized practice of immigration law;

    · Responsibility: Agree to utilize NYIAC tools and resources in a responsible fashion.

    On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced a series of unprecedented Executive actions to reform the US immigration system, including the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the establishment of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program.  An estimated 5.4 million persons met the eligibility criteria for temporary status and employment authorization under the DAPA program (3.9 million) and the original and expanded DACA programs (1.5 million). The announcement of the DAPA and expanded DACA programs mobilized a large, nationally coordinated initiative, under the rubric of the Committee for Immigration Reform Implementation (CIRI), to plan for these programs and (ultimately) for a broader legalization program.  The CIRI initiative has concentrated on expanding the capacity of community-based immigrant service agencies, maximizing the use to technology to educate the public and to provide the tools to allow unauthorized immigrants to assess their eligibility for relief, fighting the exploitation of immigrants by unscrupulousnotarios, and strengthening partnerships in communities nationwide. In an important new report published in the Journal on Migration and Human Security, CIRI’s Human Resources Working Group details the human and financial resources that will be needed to build community capacity in order to coordinate the successful implementation of a large-scale legalization program.  Drawing on lessons from the Immigrant Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA), DACA, and other initiatives, the paper provides a roadmap for implementation of administrative and legislative immigration reform. The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) invites you to join lead authors of this report — Charles Kamasaki (National Council of La Raza), Susan Timmons (American Immigration Lawyers Association), and Courtney Tudy (World Relief) – to discuss their key finding related to the capacity and funding needs of community-based immigrant-service agencies.  They will also discuss next steps for the CIRI network, including the substantial populations of unauthorized immigrants that the CIRI network plans to serve, notwithstanding delays in implementation of DAPA and expanded DACA and the absence of Congressional action on immigration.

    Speakers:

    • Donald Kerwin, Executive Director, Center for Migration Studies (moderator)
    • Charles Kamasaki, Senior Cabinet Advisor, National Council of La Raza
    • Susan Timmons, Associate Director, Practice & Professionalism, American Immigration Lawyers Association
    • Courtney Tudi, Managing Attorney, Capacity Building, World Relief

    Citizenship and Naturalization Legal Clinic

    According to the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service, only 40% of eligible immigrants in the New York City metro area have applied for naturalization. Citizenship provides immigrants with many benefits, including: voting rights, expanded opportunity to petition for foreign relatives within the United States and abroad, as well as access to medical and other benefits available to low-income individuals.

    September 17 is Constitution Day and Citizenship day. In celebration of this day, NYLAG is holding a community-based clinic to help qualified immigrants apply for naturalization, and needs pro bono attorneys, legal volunteers (BIA representatives and paralegals) and general volunteers to help pre-screened clients review the necessary forms and documents, and draft naturalization petitions and fee waivers, if applicable. NYLAG staff will be on site to provide direct supervision of volunteers.

    Temporary Protected Status Legal Clinic

    On August 25, 2015, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, announced his decision to extend Haiti’s designation for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for an additional 18 months.  Haiti was initially designated for TPS on January  21, 2010, after a major earthquake devastated the country. Following consultations with other federal agencies, the Department of Homeland Security has determined that current conditions in Haiti support extending the designation period for current TPS beneficiaries. This decision means that current TPS Haiti beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during a 60-day period that runs from August 25, 2015 through October 26, 2015. 

    NYLAG is partnering with Council Member Mathieu Eugene to provide application assistance for nationals of Haiti who are seeking to extend their TPS. At this clinic, NYLAG will be providing information about Haiti TPS and clinic volunteers are needed to assist with completing applications with attendees.  Haitian-Creole language skills are appreciated. NYLAG staff will be on site to provide direct supervision of volunteers.
         
     NYLAG will be conducting a 1-hour webinar training for CLE credit on Temporary Protected Status for Haitian nationals on:

    Friday, September 18

    Why You Should Attend

    A major disaster is likely to strike in California within our lifetime.  In the aftermath, survivors will need help to resolve legal issues related to the disaster.  By attending this program, you will learn about the most common post-disaster legal issues and then be able to participate in a regionally coordinated disaster legal services pro bono effort by providing brief phone assistance to disaster legal helpline callers, in-person assistance through legal services help desks located at Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs), or pro bono representation.

    What You Will Learn

    • Overview of framework for providing disaster legal services
    • Types of pro bono opportunities
    • Post-disaster housing issues faced by both tenants and homeowners
    • Insurance claims process and typical issues following an earthquake
    • Eligibility, application process, denials and appeals for individual assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Small Business Administration (SBA), and Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA)
    • Immigrant eligibility for individual disaster assistance
    • Consumer fraud and debtor issues

    Who Should Attend

    Non-profit organization attorneys and staff, pro bono attorneys, law firm pro bono coordinators, law school clinical faculty, or anyone who wants to learn how to assist low-income disaster survivors with legal issues related to housing (renters and homeowners), insurance, federal disaster assistance, public benefits and consumer matters.

    Temporary Protected Status Legal Clinic

    On August 25, 2015, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, announced his decision to extend Haiti’s designation for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for an additional 18 months.  Haiti was initially designated for TPS on January  21, 2010, after a major earthquake devastated the country. Following consultations with other federal agencies, the Department of Homeland Security has determined that current conditions in Haiti support extending the designation period for current TPS beneficiaries. This decision means that current TPS Haiti beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during a 60-day period that runs from August 25, 2015 through October 26, 2015. 

    NYLAG is partnering with Council Member Mathieu Eugene to provide application assistance for nationals of Haiti who are seeking to extend their TPS. At this clinic, NYLAG will be providing information about Haiti TPS and clinic volunteers are needed to assist with completing applications with attendees.  Haitian-Creole language skills are appreciated. NYLAG staff will be on site to provide direct supervision of volunteers.

    Why You Should Attend

    You should attend this training if you are a pro bono or legal services attorney who provides, or would like to provide, legal services to clients with mental disabilities in disability cases and/or improve your representation of clients with challenging behaviors in any area of law. This two part training provides instruction on 1) components of a mental status exam and insight into interviewing clients with mental disabilities where the mental health of your client is the subject matter of the litigation; and 2) how to effectively represent clients with challenging behaviors generally. Experienced practitioners from across the state will share their expertise on how to best approach issues that arise when representing clients with mental disabilities and challenging behaviors including interviewing strategies, providing accommodations, harm reduction lawyering, and managing expectations. At the end of the morning, you will have many tools you can use to develop a positive working relationship with all of your clients.  

    What You Will Learn

    • Components of a mental status exam which can be used by attorneys to document a client’s behavior for a disability case
    • How to use potential questions within a clinical interview to understand functional impairment
    • Techniques to prevent challenging client behaviors from undermining effective representation
    • The harm reduction representation model, including meeting your clients where they are without judgment and recognizing alternative success outcomes
    • Legal and ethical obligations when representing clients with disabilities
    • How to provide reasonable accommodations
    • Managing client expectations and setting appropriate parameters to foster a positive working relationship and optimal outcomes for both attorneys and clients

    Who Should Attend

    Date: Wednesday, December 16, 2015Time: 12:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.

We will address common scenarios in representing multiple family members, including conflicts between primary and derivative beneficiaries. We will also address the ethical implications of consulting a potential client who is represented by another attorney, including when that attorney may have filed fraudulent petitions on behalf of the client. Finally, we will address ethical questions that arise when clients have mental health issues. The training will be conducted by Joy Ziegeweid, Esq. of Sanctuary for Families. CLE Credit: 2 credits in professional practice. This course provides transitional credit for newly admitted attorneys and non-transitional credit for experienced attorneys.
