Communities across the United States are experiencing significant impacts of the spread of COVID-19. One of these impacts is an increase in unique, urgent legal needs. Attorneys across the country are working nearly non-stop to ensure that those impacted by COVID-19 have access to appropriate legal services.
In support of these efforts, over 300 law students, paralegals, and student paralegals have offered to provide remote pro bono support for COVID-related matters. These students stand ready to provide research, drafting, and other support to attorneys. Examples of projects students may assist on include
- research regarding paid leave policies
- drafting for bail motions
- supporting efforts to seek release from immigration custody
