Feerick Center Recruiting Experienced Attorneys for Consumer Protection Volunteer Program

April 17, 2013

Fordham Law School’s Feerick Center for Social Justice invites experienced attorneys to an informational session on Wednesday, April 17 at 6:00 p.m. for volunteer opportunities to assist low-income New Yorkers.

The orientation will introduce a new program at the Feerick Center called the Legal, Economic, and Educational, Advancement Project (LEEAP), an AmeriCorps VISTA initiative. In 2012, the Federal Corporation for National and Community Service awarded the Feerick Center a three-year grant to create LEEAP, which seeks to direct the energy, skills, and experience of seasoned lawyers to volunteer activities in three discrete focus areas: education and assistance on consumer credit; legal assistance with consumer debt; and assistance to New York City families with low incomes in accessing high-quality secondary and higher education for their children.

The informational session will be held at Paul Hastings on East 55th Street (between Park and Fifth Avenue). If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to LEEAP Co-Director Brandon Ruben at bruben2@fordham.edu at your earliest convenience.
