Providing Legal Assistance in the Aftermath of the NorCal Wildfires

Released on: Dec. 5, 2017
Running Time: 06:20:45

In the aftermath of the October NorCal wildfires, survivors face a wide variety of legal problems and barriers to recovery. This training will enable attorneys to help serve as “legal first responders,” participating in a regionally coordinated disaster legal services pro bono effort sponsored by the Bay Area Resilience Collaborative (Alameda County Bar Association and the Volunteer Legal Services Corporation; Bar Association of San Francisco, San Francisco-Marin Lawyer Referral Services, Justice & Diversity Center; Bay Area Legal Aid; Legal Aid Association of California; Pro Bono Net; and the State Bar of California). The types of pro bono assistance needed to help wildfire survivors include brief phone assistance, in person assistance at know-your-rights workshops, community forums and legal aid clinics (general or subject-specific), and legal representation (limited and full scope).
