Recognizing COVID has created urgent, unprecedented, and unique legal needs, a group of students at Stanford Law have been reaching out to legal aid and non-profit organizations for pro bono assistance.
At the beginning of every week, we send a consolidated list of new COVID pro bono opportunities that urgently need help. We also include additional opportunities that are not directly related to COVID, but would free up attorneys to focus on pandemic work. Current projects include mapping statewide eviction policies and resources; drafting bail motions; conducting asylum interviews; filing for employment benefits; research memos on quarantine laws and civil liberties.
Currently, we have around 300 Stanford, Yale, and Berkeley law volunteers, but that barely scratches the surface of the legal need that has arisen due to COVID. And so, we urgently need your help!
We invite you to join in and collaborate with our efforts by signing up for the listserv. If you have any questions, please reach out to Trillium Chang at email@example.com.
