Questions? Read the FAQs or contact us.



  • Live, in-person training is offered at the beginning of every semester and summer.  Dates and registration information will appear in Law News and is also available below.
  • Online training for students joining us mid-semester as well as information on other pro bono projects is available here.
  • Once you are trained to volunteer with the MVLC, you can pick up shifts at any of the locations. They all function essentially the same and it's nice to sample the "flavor" of each site. Information on all locations can be found here.
Student Advisory Board
In addition to being a regular volunteer with the MVLC, there are leadership opportunities as Student Advisory Board (SAB) Members.  The SAB Member role consists primarily of assisting with the facilitation of regular clinics.  More information is available in the Position Description below.  Application are due in April of each year.
