Spring Applications for Legal Services Open May 29
The Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts program utilizes a team of law student Legal Service Coordinators (LSCs) to process client applications for legal services. These LSCs are only available on a seasonal basis during the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Due to this gap in staffing between each semester, applications for legal services are accepted during specific application periods throughout the year.
To be considered, all initial client requests for legal services must be submitted during one of these application periods. The next application period for spring 2019 will begin on May 29, 2019.
We look forward to receiving and evaluating your application during this time period. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ryan Morris, Esq., Director of Volunteer Services, at [email protected] or by phone at (215) 790-3822.
