Immigration Lawyers Needed As Volunteers For COVID-19 Virtual Legal Hotline

, ,

Dear NC Bar Association International Law & Practice Section members,

The NC Bar Foundation is partnering with Legal Aid of NC and others to offer COVID-19 (Virtual) Legal Hotlines across North Carolina (like “mini-4ALLs,” but held remotely). The Hotlines will be staffed by volunteer attorneys and open to the public. We need your help for the Hotline taking place this Friday, June 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., which will serve the Triad region. Currently, we have only two immigration law attorney volunteers signed up for the first shift and zero for the second shift. Can you join us?

COVID-19 (Virtual) Legal Hotlines: More Information

Attorney volunteers are needed to serve in 2-hour shifts (9 a.m.-11 a.m. and 11 a.m.-1 p.m.) to take calls from the public and answer questions related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers will take calls remotely, through a downloaded app on computer or mobile device. Incoming COVID-19 Legal Hotline calls will be screened by intake staff and directed through the app to volunteer attorneys for legal information and counsel within their areas of practice (please specify your practice area(s) in your registration). Informational materials, training and a legal resource directory will be provided.

Since this is a service provided remotely, attorneys from any part of the state may volunteer to serve at any or all of the events, which are targeted to callers by location. If you are willing to volunteer for multiple shifts, please complete the registration process for each shift for which you would like to volunteer.

Please let me know if you have questions about this program or any of the Bar Foundation’s other COVID-19 pro bono opportunities.

Thank you!

Kim Bart Mullikin
