KCBA Launches New Mentorship Program

 

In partnership with the Seattle Community Law Center (SCLC), KCBA’s Volunteer Legal Services is launching a new mentorship program. The Social Security Mentorship Project aims to provide direct representation for low-income clients seeking advocacy for Social Security overpayment cases. Volunteer attorneys do not need to have a background in administrative law or specifically with the Social Security Administration.

Mentees (new attorneys or attorneys who are new to the practice of Social Security law) will be paired with a staff attorney from the Seattle Community Law Center. Mentees will be provided with both substantive and procedural training prior to taking a case, along with mentorship throughout the duration of the case.

Mentees are required to attend two initial trainings and represent one pro bono client. CLE credits will be requested for the trainings.

Mandatory trainings will take place at the KCBA offices on:

Tuesday, June 21 from
2:30–6 p.m. and

Tuesday, June 28 from
2:30–4:30 p.m.

In-person attendance is required at this time. To register as a mentee attorney or to simply learn more about this new volunteer opportunity, please contact Paige Hardy (PaigeH@kcba.org or 206-470-9288).
