Business and Work (including Employment)
Asking the right questions in the right way can start your attorney-client relationship off on the right note and prevent unnecessary frustration. This skill is especially important when working with pro bono clients who have had limited experience with the legal system or face other barriers.
Learn about the basics of employment law, and how you can help. Topics include: Employment at will, criminal records, wage and hour claims, unemployment compensation appeals, employment discrimination, FMLA and more. If you are interested in helping our clients and would like to take this informative online class, please contact Claudia Magnan at (860) 852-1252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This online class has everything an attorney needs to learn about our Call4Law project and working with legal aid. Call4Law is an exciting project for lawyers who want to do pro bono work for low income people, but don’t believe they have the time. All it takes to volunteer with Call4Law is an hour or two a month! Lawyers agree to make calls to pre-screened clients to analyze their problems and give advice on how the client can handle the problem pro se.
Free training for attorneys interested in volunteering at the Stamford Day Laborer Wage Clinic to help low-income workers collect their unpaid wages. The clinic operates on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 6 pm to 9:30 pm. Training can be arranged to accommodate your schedule. The next training is on June 4th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Stamford office of Connecticut Legal Services, Inc. at 20 Summer Street, 4th floor. No employment law experience is necessary.
