AARP Homebound Elderly Law Project

Posted by OPI at 3:52 PM in Pro Bono Honors Pledge

AARP-Legal Counsel for the Elderly is looking for one or two law students to work on the Homebound Elderly Law Project ("HELP").  This project provides free civil legal services to homebound seniors.  Unlike other legal services positions, HELP does not specialize in one particular area of the law.  Consequently, students could learn about creditor issues, landlord-tenant problems, public benefits, estate planning, and property tax foreclosure lawsuits.  Specific projects may vary each week but could include placing telephone calls to clients and public benefits agencies, drafting letters, conducting legal research, and accompanying the attorney on home visits.  Ideally, students would volunteer for several hours each week in one block of time.  Students are also welcome to serve as interns or externs with us.  Interested students are invited to contact the HELP attorney, Vanessa Buchko, at vbuchko@aarp.org.
