Legal Services NYC Pro Bono Student Debt Manual -- PLI video & manual link

Legal Services NYC is pleased to share our pro bono student debt manual. A video of our training and the manual itself can be accessed through PLI, at this link:

We have also uploaded a PDF of the manual here. This manual includes a "roadmap" to handling different kinds of pro bono matters; a legal outline; background materials; and a number of sample documents that may help pro bono volunteers on their cases.

*Note that this manual was created in 2016 and 2017, and that the manner in which student debt cases are addressed is now in a great deal of flux. It is the responsibility of legal services and pro bono advocates to confirm that all aspects of the law, guidance, and practices are still accurate and appropriate on any given case. Legal Services NYC makes no representations about the accuracy of these materials in the future or on particular cases. Rather, these can be used as a starting point and a model for others.
