Assisting Seniors Through the Pennsylvania SeniorLAW HelpLine: Volunteer Attorney Training (Harrisburg)

  • Pro Bono
  • Senior Citizens

Join us to learn about our unique pro bono opportunity of providing limited representation serving seniors through telephone-based services!

SeniorLAW Center will train volunteer attorneys to provide legal counseling through the Pennsylvania SeniorLAW HelpLine, a toll-free telephone service offering free, confidential legal advice, brief services, information and referrals to those 60 and over throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Learn about the prominent legal issues facing seniors and the elder justice movement.

This interactive course will focus on common areas of law requested by callers and the professional responsibility requirements of pro bono and helpline service. Participants will be trained on the logistics of handling a HelpLine call. Each participant will be able to choose the area(s) of law on which they will focus when counseling senior callers.

This is a limited representation opportunity. Volunteers are able to make their HelpLine calls from any location at times convenient to them.
