Are you 55 years of age or over, in good standing, 10 years in practice, and interested in performing pro bono work?
The New York State Unified Court System has established a new “Attorney Emeritus” status for attorneys who meet these requirements. AEP attorneys volunteer with approved pro bono legal service programs to help serve the growing numbers of New Yorkers with legal needs who cannot afford counsel.
There are two steps to becoming an Attorney Emeritus:
Submit an AEP volunteer application. You can apply by calling 877-800-0396 or by completing AEP’s online application form, which can be found here. You may submit a volunteer application at any time, even if you have not yet changed your attorney registration status.
Host programs will provide AEP volunteers with the training appropriate for the volunteer assignment.
