ABOUT THE VLP GALA:

The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) Annual Gala celebrates and honors the work of extraordinary individuals who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to serving the public good and equal justice.

As the organization’s premier fundraising event, funds raised strengthen the vital work of the VLP, including direct legal services, innovative legal education and outreach programs in consumer debt, foreclosure, immigration, family law and elder law, as well as the training and supervision of volunteer attorneys from the private bar to assist thousands of Brooklyn families and individuals facing life-altering legal challenges. The upcoming Gala will have additional significance as the VLP celebrates its 30th Anniversary.


The VLP is proud to announce Gala opening remarks to be given by The Honorable Jonathan Lippman, former Chief Judge of the State of New York and current Of Counsel, Latham and Watkins LLP.
