In celebration of National Pro Bono Week, the LA Law Library is hosting a series of events to honor the attorneys, judges, pro bono providers, community leaders, librarians and volunteers who donate their time and energy to those in need of legal assistance.
The LA Law Library has partnered with CitizenshipWorks.org, Gary Greene Esq. and his Big Band of Barristers, the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law, Los Angeles County Bar Association Barristers, Public Counsel Law Center, and SoCal Pro Bono Managers to bring a rich educational and celebratory program to Pro Bono volunteers.
“We are proud to host our first annual Pro Bono Week celebration. It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with leading legal organizations throughout Los Angeles County to develop this week’s events,” said Marcia Koslov, executive director, LA Law Library. “This is a small token of appreciation for each and every individual who graciously donates their time, energy and legal expertise to our community.”
The CitizenshipWorks.org training, targeted at public librarians, will take place on Oct. 25, from 9 am – 12 noon. Presented by the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN), the National Association of Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) and the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC), this workshop will introduce librarians from the greater Los Angeles area to CitizenshipWorks.org, an online resource for learning about citizenship eligibility and the naturalization process.
