Celebrate Pro Bono Week
VLJ celebrates pro bono work every day, but in honor of the American Bar Association's National Pro Bono Week (October 21 to 27), we encourage all of our volunteers to remember the importance of this work and we thank you for your continued dedication to VLJ and our clients.
See below some programs VLJ will be hosting this during the 2018 Pro Bono Week, and feel inspired!
As always, thank you for your continued dedication to VLJ and the clients we serve each and every day, and we hope National Pro Bono Week propels your commitment to pro bono even further!
fREE LEGAL CLINICS
During Pro Bono Week, VLJ will host several of our free legal clinics for low-income New Jersey residents, on matters related to divorce, eviction defense, and two clinics serving the veteran population, focusing on criminal record expungement, driver's license restoration and holistic legal intake.
FREE LEGAL SEMINAR
On Wednesday, October 24th, VLJ will host a free legal seminar, Child Custody - Your Legal Rights, for Newark's South Ward residents. The seminar will take place at the Weequahic Library at 4p.m. and an experienced pro bono attorney will provide an overview of different types of child custody, how to modify child custody, and more.
