Details

AABANY's Pro Bono & Community Service Committee will conduct its first Legal Advice & Referral Pro Bono Clinic in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, September 26, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The clinic will be held at A+ Academy, 6802 8th Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11220 (conveniently located near the 8th Ave subway station on the N line). 

Since the inauguration of AABANY's monthly pro bono clinic in 2015, hundreds of low-income community members have received thoughtful advice and appropriate legal referrals from AABANY members.  

The Pro Bono Committee is seeking volunteer attorneys and language interpreters for the Pro Bono Clinic in Brooklyn. Attorney volunteers do not need to be specialists or have expertise in a specific area of law, but should have experience in client intake and consultation. Attorney volunteers will only be rendering legal advice and will not take on any legal representation. All attorney volunteers must be AABANY members for professional liability coverage purposes. Volunteers may sign up here to become an AABANY member or can do so at the Pro Bono Clinic. Interpreter volunteers should be fluent in English and at least one of the following languages: Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, or other Asian languages or dialects. 

Volunteers - attorneys and interpreters - should bring open ears, patience, and compassion. All volunteers should arrive by 5:45 PM and will be given an orientation before the start of the clinic. Attorneys and interpreters interested in volunteering for the Pro Bono Clinic, and those who need certifications of pro bono hours for bar admission purposes, should contact [email protected]. 

AABANY's Brooklyn Pro Bono Clinic is conducted in collaboration with: NYS Assemblyman, Peter J. Abbate Jr., NYS Senator, Andrew Gounardes, and NYC Councilman, Justin Brannan.  Special thanks to our sponsors: A+ Academy, Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC), Chinese American Social Services Center (CASS), Homecrest Community Services, Academy of Medical & Public Health Services (AMPHS), Brooklyn Community Improvement Association (BCIA), Parent Child Relationship Association, and the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn (UCA).
