MJF offers numerous volunteer opportunities. Students can help meet the legal needs of low-income and disadvantaged clients through programs that pair volunteer law students with legal service agencies and attorneys. Students gain practical experience and have an opportunity to help those in need. Check the MJF web site (www.mnjustice.org) for specific volunteer opportunities, and contact Hamline staff attorney Sara Schwebs (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about how to volunteer.
Street Law enables law students to teach fundamental legal rights, responsibilities, and resources to low-income, at-risk juveniles in Minnesota. Law students have an opportunity to reach out to young people at alternative learning centers, charter schools, or other educational or after-school programs. Street law hours count as MJF volunteer hours. Contact: Sara Schwebs - email@example.com.
