Volunteer

Every year, dozens of lawyers, law students, and other volunteers work with CLS staff to fulfill the promise of justice in Connecticut. We seek volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and law students to assist with legal work. Paralegals and law students may be able to obtain clinical credit towards a course of study.
