Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Volunteer Program
OPPORTUNITIES IN GAINESVILLE
For UF Law Students
The Gainesville office of Three Rivers Legal Services, Inc. has several volunteer opportunities for UF Law Students. We offer several clinics,
through which law students are able to assist our clients on a wide range of issues. Some of our previous clinics include:
- Pro-Se Divorce
- Sealing /Expunction of Records
- Outreach to the Spanish Speaking Community
- Elder Law
- Homeless Outreach
- General Legal Intake
The clinics offered vary from semester to semester, but Housing, Pro Se Divorce, and General Intake are staples, usually offered every Fall and Spring Semester. Further, this is not an exhaustive list; we are constantly trying to develop new clinics to match student interests with community needs.
Our volunteer clinic opportunities are designed around the UF Law School Schedule. This means that the deadline for registering for these clinics is early in the semester. We usually send out information and registration information on the clinics being offered in a particular semester through the student affairs and career services listserv within two to three weeks of the beginning of the semester. If you miss the deadline for registering, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, as we may still be able to fit you into one of our clinics (depending on availability and opportunity for training). If for some reason you do not receive our clinic information through one of the law school listservs, please contact us at email@example.com and we will e-mail you this information.
NOTE: These clinics are not associated with the clinics offered by the UF Law School. In the UF Law School clinics, students become Certified Legal Interns, can actually practice law under the supervision of a supervising attorney, and receive law school credit. Three Rivers clinic volunteers may be eligible to receive a pro-bono certificate from UF Levin College of Law, but do not receive law school credit or CLI status.
The Gainesville office of Three Rivers Legal Services, Inc. is eager to provide volunteer opportunities to all who are interested. If you are unable to participate in the clinics because of a scheduling conflict, or because you missed the registration deadline, please let us know about your interest in volunteering by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.*
