Why Volunteer as a Law or Paralegal Student?
WHY VOLUNTEER AS A STUDENT?
Law and paralegal student volunteers are an important part of the VLP team. Law students and paralegal students alike gain valuable experiences volunteering at VLP.
Volunteering at VLP can help law students meet the 50 hours of pro bono services required for admission to the New York State Bar.
WHAT WOULD I DO AS A STUDENT INTERN?
Our student volunteers interview clients to determine financial eligibility, identify client needs, brief attorneys, participate in attorney client interviews, spot the issue, conduct legal research, draft legal documents, and observe court proceedings. Students can also take advantage of opportunities for mentoring & networking while volunteering with VLP.
Law students can join VLP as volunteers, interns, externs or pro bono scholars.
