Legal Volunteers

Volunteer

Our legal volunteers are law students, interns and practicing attorneys who have a passion for helping those marginalized by a criminal record.

Law Students and interns are provided an opportunity to perform post-conviction relief work under the supervision of a licensed attorney and, depending on the law school, may apply hours to school credits.
