Resources for Law Student Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Volunteer Lawyers Network! We are grateful for the help you will be providing to low-income persons and we will work to make sure this experience is an excellent opportunity for you to learn.
If you have questions about volunteer opportunities at VLN, please contact us. In order to volunteer at VLN, please contact your MJF staff attorney for a referral. For current volunteer opportunities, please visit: Minnesota Justice Foundation
If you have already been referred to VLN from your MJF staff attorney, please download and complete the Volunteer Law Student Acknowledgement - Clinics Form and email it to Tom Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once referred, please complete the Law Student Membership Application . This will confirm your space in the clinic (students are given priority in the order in which these emails are received).
