Come one, come all—bring your summer clerks to volunteer with you!
Balch Attorneys Allen Baker (standing, second from left) and Robby Anderson (seated at right) brought six summer clerks to the Veterans Help Desk this past week.
If you value donating your time to clients in need through Volunteer Lawyers Birmingham, summer is a great time to share that experience with your summer clerks. They'll learn about poverty law and giving back to the community by shadowing you at a Help Desk. In years past, summer clerks who have spent time at one or more of our Help Desks have found it to be a rewarding opportunity that can cultivate a lifetime spirit of volunteerism.

To volunteer for a Help Desk—and bring summer associates along— please click here. Remember, all summer clerks should attend a Help Desk with an attorney from their firm.
