Are you a legal service provider or public interest law group? There are a number of ways to get involved.
First, your staff can join a practice area and get involved. Having the expertise of the legal service community is critical to building an effective online community of public interest lawyers. We welcome contributions from our legal service organization community, including news items, training events, pro bono opportunities, and library resources!
Second, there might be an existing practice area that covers your geographic area, and you might be interested in placing cases for volunteer lawyers in the practice area. In this situation, you should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or the host of the particular practice area to discuss these issues.
Third, you might be interested in constructing a new practice area for your organization or community. If so, contact email@example.com! We are looking to provide this service to new groups and legal communities across New York City, New York State and the country.
