The GI Rights Hotline and the Bay Area Military Law Panel invite you to the training for the fall semester on September 23 2-5pm at the SF Quaker Meetinghouse at 65 9th Street. We will again have opportunities for law students to do pro bono work at the GI Rights Hotline. We ask for a two hour a week commitment, working hours are between 10 and 5 generally although exceptions have been made. We ask that the students attend the training after which they are paired with an experienced counselor until they have acquired command of the necessary materials, then they may counsel on their own. This is a great opportunity to be introduced to Military issues, and to work on your interviewing skills! Veterans are especially invited to join us. "
