NEW HAVEN LEGAL ASSISTANCE ASSOCIATION (NHLAA) OFFICE HOURS
YULAA volunteers will sign up for and attend shifts at the NHLAA office. During these blocks of time, volunteers will be expected to help attorneys with an assortment of case-related tasks, largely in the removal defense context. Volunteers will be responsible for drafting or editing memos and affidavits, filling out USCIS forms, gathering evidence, and interviewing clients. While no legal background is necessary, strong writing skills are required. NHLAA will provide all training and resources, but it will be up to the volunteer to communicate and follow-up with their respective attorneys.
