Pro Bono Opportunity

October 6, 2010

 Paul Kurth, Director of the CCLS Consumer Project, is conducting a series of consumer financial protection “know-your-rights” workshops in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC in November. He is looking for about 10 students for each workshop Thursday evening the 11th and Thursday evening the 18th to help with the presentations and then to meet with participants one-on-one afterwards to provide basic information about their rights, how to protect themselves, etc. If you’d like to volunteer there is a mandatory 1-hour training session you must attend on Monday, October 25 from 12:30 to 1:30 PM.  A sign-up sheet has been posted on the SPIL TWEN page (please disregard the Nov. 4 slot as there will be no workshop that day).

 This is a fantastic opportunity for you to earn SPIL hours, as well as Pro Bono Challenge hours.  While there are only 20 spots available for the November workshops, Mr. Kurth is planning more workshops in January, which may be more possible for 1Ls.
