Homeless Advocacy Project is Now Signing Up Firms for Summer Associate in Public Service Program

 

This June 1, summer associates from several San Francisco law firms will be attending a training for VLSP’s Homeless Advocacy Project’s (HAP) Summer Associate in Public Service Program.

Through this program, summer associates work with supervising attorneys on individual HAP cases throughout the summer, gaining experience in client interviewing, issue identification, negotiation, drafting of legal briefs and memoranda, discovery, and possible appearances in civil and/or administrative settings.

The program demonstrates for summer associates the importance of making pro bono work a part of their careers, and is also an opportunity for law firms to make a difference assisting homeless San Franciscans in need of legal services.

We are now signing up firms for the summer program 2011. If you are interested in getting your firm involved, please contact Andrea Fitanides at afitanides@sfbar.org or 415-782-9000 x8714.
