TPS Clinic at The Medical-Legal Partnership | Boston

The Medical-Legal Partnership | Boston at Boston Medical Center is currently recruiting law students and attorneys to assist with a legal clinic that will help eligible Haitians apply for Temporary Protected Status.

The clinic will be held on Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Boston Health Care for the Homeless at 780 Albany St., and will be open to patients of Boston Medical Center who meet financial and other eligibility requirements. The clinic will begin on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 and will operate until the close of the TPS application process in July 2010.

All volunteers will be asked to attend a one-time training for two hours, and to commit to staffing at least two clinic sessions over the course of 6 months. Students, faculty and clinic staff are welcome and encouraged to participate if they are interested and able to make this commitment.

If you are interested in staffing the clinic, simply come to a training session on February 11th (details below). Further information about the clinic and staffing schedules will be provided that night. We are unfortunately unable at this time to accommodate volunteers who are unable to attend the training.
