The QLaw Foundation LGBTQ+ Legal Clinic is rolling out an exciting new volunteer training program starting November 22. This multi-part training is part of our new partnerships with Entre Hermanos and the Lavender Rights Project, and offers great training for new and returning volunteers, as well as attorneys who want to volunteer with our pro bono network launching in 2020. The new trainings will cover lots of key issues and topics that will be coming our way through the new partnerships, including legal issues affecting Latinx individuals and immigration and asylum issues, legal and non-legal issues for survivors of violence, as well as case management, intake, and client relationship-building. We are really excited about our new client-focused clinic model and community partnerships, and cannot wait to get all of our existing volunteers and new volunteers on board!
Who should attend this training? All current QLaw Foundation LGBTQ+ Legal Clinic volunteers, past volunteers who are interested in getting involved, prospective volunteers, and interested law students.
When is the training? Friday, November 22, 2019, 8:30am – 4:30pm
Where is the training? Davis Wright Tremaine, Downtown Seattle (920 5th Avenue, #3300, Seattle, WA, 98104 – thank you, DWT, for your support!)
Where can I register? Agenda, registration, and other details are available here!
Will there be CLE credit? Yes! We are applying for CLE credit; information about pending and approved credits will be on the registration page.
Is there a cost? The training and CLE is free of charge to all who agree to volunteer at the LGBTQ+ legal clinic or with our pro bono network. For those who do not plan to volunteer, the cost is $40.00 for QLaw Association members and $75.00 for non-members.
What if I cannot attend? The CLE will be recorded and will be available online at a later date. However, the training will include lots of simulations, discussions, and hands-on learning, so we do encourage all who are able to attend in person.
Will there be more trainings? Yes! We have another training coming up in December. Stay tuned for a save-the-date in the coming weeks.
