Tuesday, July 14, 2015

This summer, we’re celebrating the people who have given — and continue to give — their time and talents to NYLAG. Thanks to their dedication, we have grown enormously. Last year alone, NYLAG’s 250 staff members and 1,200 volunteers provided legal assistance to over 76,000 vulnerable New Yorkers.

Schedule of Events*

CLE Training
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Defending Student Loan Victims: Obstacles and Options
NYLAG’s Special Litigation Unit presents a panel on federal student loans: how they allow sham schools to con students and taxpayers; what students who attended bad for-profit schools can do to seek discharge of or present defenses to collection of their loans; and how the U.S. Department of Education is failing to protect students.

Open House
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Grab a drink, tour our offices, connect with colleagues old and new,
and engage in conversations about different areas of law.

5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Network with the larger NYLAG community of interns, volunteers, staff members and supporters. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a brief program with remarks by Counsel to the Mayor Maya Wiley.

*There are three overlapping options and you are invited to join us for all of them! If you want to attend the CLE, there will still be time to take a tour, participate in the open house, and enjoy the reception, so feel free to reserve a slot for any/all options.
