Volunteer lawyers from the Labor and Employment Law Section are needed to staff the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program Advice and Referral Clinic.
Once a month for a few hours (from 9:30 a.m. until around 1:00 p.m.), volunteer attorneys give basic legal advice, provide brief services, and refer clients to the Bar’s Pro Bono Program clinics, area legal service providers, or other resources for assistance. All legal issues are governed by D.C. or federal law.
Volunteers come from private practice, public interest organizations, and the government. No volunteer attorney is expected to take on any cases through the clinic.
Client questions cover a variety of issues, and Section volunteers provide expert assistance to other volunteer lawyers and provide direct service to clinic clients. Section volunteers should have 3-5 years of employment law experience.
