Pro Bono Spring Break at Volunteer Lawyers Project in Boston

Students who participate in Volunteer Lawyers Project’s (VLP) 35-hour week-long spring break project-based internship receive a full day of training to prepare them for attending legal clinics in housing, family law and guardianship, and debt collection. Students will have the opportunity to work on unit-specific projects that support VLP’s program. At their virtual or in-person court-based clinics, students will assist with legal triage and screen clients for eligibility, draft legal documents and shadow an attorney who provides legal advice. Students will provide support to the attorneys and paralegals with various case management tasks, including case updates and client follow-up, and some data entry.

Applications are due by Tuesday January 31, at 4PM. Internships will be virtual except for a few in-person clinics.
