This training course provides an introduction to working with the Volunteer Lawyers Project. Taught by one of the VLP staff attorneys and the referral coordinator, this course provides an in depth look at everything you need to know in beginning your work with our organization. We will touch upon many frequently asked questions like: what types of cases does VLP work with, what it's like to work with interpreters, and where can I get help on this case. Along with that, this training will provide a space for new panel attorneys to ask any questions they may have about the way our organization works, the referral process and anything other questions that may arise. This training is meant to provide an introduction to VLP, our services, and our clients. Each orientation can accommodate 15 people, so please register early to reserve your spot.
