Local Alumni Needed to Assist Students in a New Program
In conjunction with WCL alumna and adjunct professor Tanya Jones-Bosier, the Office of Public Interest (“OPI”) implemented the WCL Family Court Self-Help Center Pro Bono Project during the spring 2013 semester. This project gave students the opportunity to earn pro bono pledge hours by completing a training with Tanya and then volunteering at the Family Court Self-Help Center (“SHC”) in the Moultrie Courthouse of DC Superior Court. Students met directly with customers of the SHC. The pilot was a huge success and OPI is looking to expand the project during the next academic year to accommodate more student volunteers. OPI is looking for alumni volunteers to supervise WCL students. Please visit wcl.american.edu/alumni and click on the “Volunteer” page link to see further details or contact David Steib at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
