SeniorLAW Center will train volunteer attorneys to provide legal counseling through the Pennsylvania SeniorLAW HelpLine, a toll-free telephone service offering free, confidential legal advice, brief services, information and referrals to those 60 and over throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Learn about the prominent legal issues facing seniors and the elder justice movement. This interactive course will focus on common areas of law requested by callers and the professional responsibility requirements of pro bono and helpline service. Participants will be trained on the logistics of handling a HelpLine call. Each participant will be able to choose the area(s) of law on which they will focus when counseling senior callers. This is a limited representation opportunity. Volunteers make HelpLine calls from their own offices at times convenient to them. CLE credits (1.5 substantive and .5 ethics) are available in exchange for two 2-hour shifts on the HelpLine. For security purposes and to order lunch (courtesy of Morgan Lewis), advance registration is required. Please email jjarzebowska@seniorlawcenter.org or call 215-701-3216 by October 17th to register.
