Law School’s New Health and Human Rights Clinic Needs Attorney Volunteers
With generous support from the Indianapolis Bar Foundation, the Health and Human Rights Clinic (“HHRC”) at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law invites local attorneys to team with clinical faculty in providing pro bono representation to low-income clients in the Indianapolis community.
This program is designed to provide law school graduates and attorneys in the local community with an opportunity to learn and develop practice skills while providing legal representation to vulnerable populations in the Indianapolis area. The HHRC staff will provide training and support to volunteers during their representation of clients.
Key Features of the Program include:
- Screening of cases by the HHRC before referral to volunteers
- Free full-day procedural and substantive training (CLE credit is pending) in practice areas including: Housing, Consumer, & Public Benefits Law in exchange for accepting pro bono cases
- Guidance and support from experienced poverty law attorneys throughout the representation of clients
- Volunteer recognition programs
- Special recognition for volunteers who provide outstanding service
To participate in this program, volunteers must attend a free full-day training session that will be held on Friday, February 24, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. An application for CLE credit is pending in anticipation of offering six (6) hours of free CLE credit to all attendees who accept pro bono cases.
