Join NYLAG's Volunteer and Pro Bono Programs

NYLAG has a wide range of volunteer and pro bono opportunities for attorneys, law grads, law students and others. If you are interested in getting involved with NYLAG, please fill out this form to help us process your inquiry more quickly.

This form is NOT an application. Your responses to the questions on this form will be used to determine what opportunities at NYLAG could be the best fit for you. If you are applying for a specific position posted on our website or idealist.org page, please follow the application instructions indicated on that posting and do not submit this form.

PLEASE NOTE: All on-going volunteer applicants (those who commit to a regular, long-term placement with NYLAG) undergo a standard application process: staff attorneys review resumes and conduct interviews to determine whether the volunteer would be a good fit for their unit and project. Placement is not guaranteed, and can often depend on staff and office resources.
