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.

Your support is vital to the success of the Gala. As the organization’s premier fundraising event, funds raised strengthen the essential 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. 

Join us to for this special virtual event in celebration of Mike and Jim and the VLP’s 30th Anniversary, all in support of our critical mission. Donate today!

When a viewing link is made available closer to the event date, we encourage sharing far and wide.


The VLP is proud to announce Virtual 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.
