Hopefully, you are all doing well, and this post finds you healthy and staying at home.
If you’re getting used to the new world of law school and you find yourself with a little less pressure, here is a list of organizations that have remote volunteer opportunities for law students. This is obviously not a comprehensive list, but as of now, each of these organizations has opportunities listed for student volunteers.
One of the most important things you can do in times of crisis is to let your representatives know what is important to you. Write, call, use social media. If you’re not sure what to advocate for, consider following your representatives on Twitter. Many of them are very active. Things I am writing letters to my representatives about: Releasing pre-trial individuals from jails and prisons to prevent overcrowding in a time of pandemic; a stimulus bill that values individuals over corporations; lifting of sanctions against Iran to curb the impact of Coronavirus.
Local and Regional Initiatives
And don’t forget to reach out to your school’s Center for Public Service, Office of Public Interest, or equivalent.
