NYC Legal Services Open House

Legal Services NYC is the largest organization in the nation devoted exclusively to providing free civil legal services to low-income New Yorkers. For over 40 years, its network of 19 offices has provided legal help to people who have no where else to turn. Its multi-disciplinary, multi-lingual staff of more than 350 dedicated individuals — attorneys, paralegals, social workers and support personnel — helps more than 60,000 individuals and families every year to resolve urgent crises in critical areas such as family, housing, health, benefits, consumer, employment, economic development and education law.

Legal Services NYC’s community-based offices in low-income communities throughout New York City include Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Legal Services, the Brooklyn Family Defense Project, Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, Legal Services NYC-Bronx, Legal Services NYC-Brooklyn Branch, Manhattan Legal Services, Staten Island Legal Services, Queens Legal Services, and South Brooklyn Legal Services.

The November 13th Open House is an opportunity to discuss employment, fellowship and internship opportunities at Legal Services NYC. Leadership from the various offices will attend the event. There will be staff presentations about its vital work and innovative projects.
