Volunteering

Our volunteers keep coming back. Why? Just ask them!

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

Our volunteers enjoy the My Community Legal (MCL) experience for many different reasons, including:

  • To give something back
  • Helping local battlers
  • Networking with colleagues and law students
  • Mixing with lawyers in other practice areas

Please ask one of our volunteers what MCL is all about or book an orientation / induction and see for yourself.
