      Friends of NYLAG,

NYLAG routinely offers one-day legal clinics in the community to address urgent and other large-scale needs. Participants undergo training in the legal issues addressed in the clinic and are supervised by NYLAG staff attorneys. NYLAG has several different one-day legal clinic volunteer opportunities available. Pro bono attorneys, law grads and law students are welcome to participate
  1. Citizenship and Naturalization Legal Clinic
  2. Mobile Legal Help Center Volunteer Opportunities
  3. Temporary Protected Status Legal Clinic

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in joining us at one or more of these clinics. Due to space limitations, we can only accommodate the indicated number of volunteers at each site, so we cannot accept everyone who might be interested in participating on a given day. 

**NEW:** To sign up for one or more of the One-Day Legal Clinics, please fill out this form. You may contact me for questions, but the only way to sign up for the clinics is via the online form.  

Due to the high volume of interested volunteers, please note it may take 2-3 business days to respond to your request to volunteer. Please wait for confirmation before making plans to go to a site.

Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to serving those in need in our community.

Best regards,

Jaida Samuels

Mobile Legal Help Center Volunteer Opportunities

The Mobile Legal Help Center (MLHC) is the country’s first-ever legal services office and courtroom on wheels. On the MLHC, NYLAG staff provide counseling, advice, and direct representation on a variety of legal issues—from public benefits, family and matrimonial law, employment law, immigration and more—without leaving the vehicle. A video link with the courts enables access to judges for emergency hearings, including domestic violence and eviction cases.

NYLAG staff will be conducting legal clinics aboard the MLHC on the dates listed below. We invite participation from volunteer attorneys, law graduates and law students to help us provide legal services. Volunteers conduct intake interviews with MLHC visitors, and provide information and brief advice on a variety of legal issues. All volunteers are supervised by a NYLAG staff attorney who assists with evaluation of the legal issues raised during intake, and provides any guidance and support volunteers may need. Volunteers will have access to a recording of a webinar training on the MLHC intake process and will be sent training materials and intake guides.
