We need your help to assist clients attempting to secure unemployment insurance benefits. This training will give you the foundation you need to represent a claimant in an administrative hearing at the Division of Unemployment Assistance. VLP provides training materials and mentoring. You must be admitted to practice in Massachusetts to be covered under VLP's malpractice insurance.
Unemployment appeals are a good pro bono opportunity for recent law school graduates and for attorneys who are looking for client interaction and advocacy experience.
