Syla Legal Aid

A live Q&A session will close the event. Feel free to send mail@syla.co.uk your questions in advance or ask them in person or via the Zoom chat bar in the evening. NVRDC is a local nonprofit organization that provides hospital representation, case management, and legal advice to all victims of crime in Washington, including GW students who have experienced sexual assault, domestic violence, or harassment. NVRDC case managers can help you conduct a forensic investigation following a sexual assault, accompany you to the police, and help you claim compensation for victims of crime. NVRDC`s attorney may represent you in criminal proceedings, assist you in obtaining a civil defense order, or represent you in GW`s Title IX disciplinary proceedings. We also host a series of CPD events each year to inform our members of legal updates and soft skills development. The event will be chaired by Kingsley Thomas. Mr. Thomas is the Criminal Legal Aid Officer at SLAB and has worked in legal aid administration since 1983. He leads a busy department that manages and makes decisions on all types of criminal justice across Scotland. * This is a paid referral service.

Individuals pay standard attorney rates once a recommendation is accepted. For pro bono or free legal services, please read the resource information from the Legal Aid Society of DC, the Network for Victim Recovery of DC and Ayuda. You can contact the GW Office of Advocacy and Support or the Title IX Office to understand your legal and criminal/civil options. It`s important to understand your legal options so you can make an informed decision about the next steps you want to take. This event is for anyone who wants an overview of the assessment of criminal legal aid applications, as well as practical tips and tricks on financial eligibility. The Scottish Young Lawyers` Association, in partnership with the Scottish Legal Aid Board (SLAB), will launch the latest series `Beyond the Basics` – Beyond the Basics: Criminal legal aid applications next week. The District of Columbia Bar Association (BADC) provides the only referral service to District Attorneys (LRS) to the community and its members. The LRS easily and quickly connects people in the community with experienced lawyers by specialty. “Young lawyers” are LLB students, degree advertisements, articling students and qualified lawyers for up to 10 years. To get started, simply fill out a short survey to find a lawyer who specializes in your topic.

We believe that young lawyers should work hard and therefore also play hard – we organize a variety of social events to entertain our members. SYLA is a not-for-profit organisation that has been representing, training and entertaining young Scottish lawyers since 1974. Ayuda is a non-profit service provider in Washington that provides a range of immigration and family law services, social services, and language access support to low-income immigrants around the world. We are also a voice for young lawyers in Scotland and want to represent their views. Once the survey is complete, the system collects a referral fee of $39.95 and sends an email or text message to your potential lawyer. The hired lawyer will review the information and contact you. Legal Aid provides direct representation to clients in four key practice areas and also handles appeals on a wide range of poverty issues through its nationally recognized Barbara McDowell Advocacy Appeal Project. In addition to on-campus protections, consider filing a Civil Defense Order (CPO) in DC courts.

You can apply for a protection order in Washington DC if you live, work, or go to school in DC, or if one of the incidents occurred in DC. Information on how to obtain a CPO can be obtained from the Metropolitan Police Department.
