To volunteer for in-house consultations or to take a case from our list of available cases, or caselist, VLA requires that attorneys attend a short orientation. At the orientation, important information about VLA’s programs, requirements for volunteers and our administrative procedures will be covered.
All orientations take place
at VLA Auditorium:
One East 53rd Street, First Floor , New York, NY 10022.
Attorney orientations are conducted by VLA staff.
Please note the following requirements for all attorneys performing volunteer work through VLA:
- All volunteer attorneys MUST be covered by their own or their employer’s legal malpractice insurance policy for volunteer work performed through VLA.
- Attorneys who have have been admitted to practice for less than 3 years must have a supervising attorney who has been admitted to practice for longer than 3 years. Volunteers are responsible for securing their own supervising attorney.
