Current Volunteers:

If you are currently on the VLSP or FLVLS panel and have handled a case or worked in one of the VLSP or FLVLS clinics recently, you will be approved to join the site as a prerequisite for your service.

Not Currently a Volunteer:

If you are not currently a VLSP or FLVLS volunteer, you do not need to take a case now in order to join. However, we do expect those whom we authorize for access to register for VLSP or the Finger Lakes Volunteer Lawyer Service and to accept a case as soon as possible. Please register now to become a volunteer and gain access to our resources.
