If you are a lawyer, admitted to practice in NJ (or admitted and in good standing in another state), and wish to get involved in Volunteer Lawyers for Justice (VLJ)'s pro bono program, please complete the volunteer form below.
Upon completion you will be added to VLJ's listserv to begin receiving information about VLJ, organization updates, and upcoming events and CLE trainings. You will also be invited to our next New Volunteer Orientation session. Once you have attended a New Volunteer Orientation, you will receive additional information on volunteering with the program that is of most interest to you and/or works best with your schedule.
NOTE: If you are a lawyer with Merck & Co., Inc., PSEG, Prudential, AT&T, Gibbons PC, or McCarter & English, in addition to completing this form, please contact your internal pro bono coordinator. We have partnerships with each of these firms and corporations and have a different training program for volunteers from these offices.
For all other volunteers, you will be contacted within a week regarding our next new volunteer orientation meeting, entitled, “The Ethical Pro Bono Volunteer.” In addition to getting more information about VLJ’s programs and services, you will also receive 1 NJ ethics CLE credit.
