The Project

As an Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellow in upstate New York, Sara’s mission was to provide direct legal services to those in need as well as to connect public interest-minded law students with organizations across New York State. The poor in rural upstate NY have unique challenges in accessing legal assistance. Legal Assistance of Western New York (LawNY) serves indigent clients in civil law matters. Sara’s contribution was two-fold: the Divorce Project which assists pro se clients in navigating the divorce procedure, and the Prisoner Re-entry Project which provides counseling to individuals whose criminal records limit their options for housing/employment.
