The Volunteer Lawyers Project is pleased to be partnering with Brooklyn Defender Services, the Brooklyn Bar Association and the Brooklyn Women’s Bar to provide emergency legal assistance to Haitian immigrants who may be eligible for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

Thousands of Haitian immigrants currently live in Brooklyn.  In the wake of last month’s devastating earthquake, Haitian immigrants living in the US on the date of the earthquake were granted the right to apply for TPS.  Volunteer lawyers are needed to staff temporary legal clinics at which they will give advice about TPS and assist in filling out applications.

For more information, please see the registration flyer.

The training is FREE to volunteers. Attendees will receive 2 CLE credits (Professional Practice) appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys.
