Joint FBA - ACCA Brief Advice and Referral Clinic


In an exciting joint collaboration, members of our Chapter of the Federal Bar Association will be teaming up with the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel – America (NEO ACCA) to staff a Legal Aid Society of Cleveland Brief Advice and Referral Clinic on Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 9:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Spanish American Committee (4407 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland) on the near West Side.  Afterwards, we plan to go to lunch with our in-house counterparts at Great Lakes Brewing Company.
 
The Brief Advice and Referral Clinic provides Cleveland area residents an opportunity to discuss their civil legal problems with a volunteer attorney.  Residents receive general advice, information or referral to a variety of community resources which are available to assist residents in dealing with their legal issues.  Lawyers need not have any prior experience.  A brief orientation will be held at the beginning of the clinic.
 
If you are interested in doing pro bono work, but unable to take on a long term service commitment, then this is the perfect opportunity for you.  The Brief Advice and Referral Clinic provides a safe, convenient and well organized opportunity for you to volunteer and make a difference for people in our community who do not have the resources to pay for legal advice.  The commitment involves only 4 hours of your time.  No prior training is required.  Attorneys, law clerks and students are all welcome. 
 
If you are interested in participating as a volunteer, kindly contact Jennifer Lesny Fleming at Jennifer.Fleming@kaufman-company.com by September 9, 2011.
