Women's Bar Foundation - Family Law Project Training

  • Family Law

The Family Law Project (FLP) recruits, trains, and mentors pro bono attorneys to assist low-income survivors of domestic violence. Taking a case gives volunteer attorneys invaluable opportunities to work directly with clients.

No prior family law experience is required, and you must be licensed in Massachusetts. Every volunteer attorney is assigned a mentor, an experienced family law practitioner who provides an additional level of service and support. Volunteers also receive a comprehensive training manual and have access to the legal resources at the WBF.

We are pleased to be able to offer this training at no charge for participants who take her/his first case within six months. If, however, after attending the training, you do not take a case, there is a charge of $200 to cover the cost of the training and materials provided.
