Volunteering at the LAC
At the LAC, trained volunteers work alongside experienced staff to provide legal self help services to the people of Kent County. Volunteers learn about the courts, substantive law and legal procedure. Serving at the LAC is an ideal opportunity for college and graduate students studying law or aspiring to careers in law, social work or social justice.
Requirements for LAC Volunteers
LAC volunteers must be able to serve a minimum of one, half day shift per week (morning or afternoon, Tuesday to Friday), for two consecutive volunteer terms (January-April, May-August, September-December). Volunteer schedules are set for each volunteer term.
The LAC provides initial and ongoing training. You do not need legal experience or to be studying law to volunteer. Volunteers must be able to attend a day-long initial training.
