HABA has partnered with the Volunteer Lawyers Network, Hmong American Partnership, and Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association to launch a summer legal advice clinic to serve low-income communities on the East Side of Saint Paul.
Your help is needed to make the legal clinic a success! Please consider serving as a volunteer attorney or volunteer law student at one of our clinics. This summer we are holding three clinics on June 27th, July 25th, and August 29th from 1pm to 3pm at Hmong American Partnership. Volunteer attorneys are asked to provide legal advice only in the areas of law they are familiar with. Law students will screen and conduct client intake. The Volunteer Lawyers Network will provide malpractice insurance for all registered attorneys.

The Hmong American Bar Association (HABA) invites the community to submit applications to be considered for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation course scholarship. Strong LSAT scores can lead to law school scholarships, highly competitive law school applications, and a greater likelihood of acceptance into law school. Additionally, HABA is committed to diversifying the legal field by aiding law school hopefuls at the earliest stages of their legal career. This scholarship is intended to remove the financial barrier of a LSAT preparation course for a potential law student who cannot afford to pay for the course. The scholarship will be a direct payment from HABA to a LSAT preparation course provider on behalf of the scholarship recipient.
Applications due by May 30, 2018, 12 Midnight Central Time, submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: ”HABA LSAT PREP COURSE SCHOLARSHIP”.
