The LGBT Bar Association and Foundation of Greater New York (“LeGaL”) is now accepting applications for its 2021 Law Student Liaisons to serve on the Boards of Directors for the Association and Foundation (collectively, the “Board”).
This is an unpaid, volunteer opportunity open to any person who attends and is in good standing at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association. Law Student Liaisons are non-voting members of the Board who are uniquely poised to bring issues affecting current students and recent graduates to the attention of the organization. Appointed Liaisons can expect to learn in significant detail about the daily operation of a non-profit organization, to develop professional contacts within the local LGBTIA+ legal community, and to work closely with the organization's Officers, Legal Director, Executive Director, and Board on a wide range of LeGaL's programs and initiatives.
Attend LeGaL monthly Board meetings and networking events.
Serve as an ambassador for LeGaL at your law school.
Assist in fundraising and development, such as volunteering at LeGaL’s key annual fundraiser.
Facilitate communications between JD/LLM students and LeGaL regarding initiatives and programming conducted by LeGaL.
Uphold ethical and fiduciary duties as appropriate.
Remote until further notice. Eventually, New York City, COVID-19 permitting.
Please sign up for our mailing list to receive future updates about LeGaL events and programs for Law Students.
