The Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office (CLARO) is a free, weekly walk-in clinic that provides limited legal advice to pro se litigants with consumer debt matters in the New York Civil Courts. CLARO was created in response to the growing numbers of low-income individuals being sued in Civil Court by collection agencies.
The training is free to those who volunteer for 6 total hours with CLARO or 12 total hours with the Civil Court Consumer Debt programs by April 30, 2011. Volunteers can serve one of the consumer debt pro se assistance programs in all boroughs (except Staten Island).
