The Project

I am working in the Ithaca office of Legal Assistance of Western New York (LAWNY), an LSC-funded civil legal services provider. Half of my time is spent assisting low-income clients in uncontested divorce matters and in prisoner reentry issues. The other half of my time consists of co-administering the Law Students in Action Project (LSAP), where we recruit law students to volunteer their time at local legal service offices, both during the academic term and during the summer months.
