200 Senior Citizens Attend Campus Event for Workshops and Free Legal Counsel

10/27/2013 | Facebook | Twitter | Email

Volunteer alumni and non-alumni attorneys, with faculty members, held dozens of workshops and privately counseled more than 200 senior citizens and family members on October 26 as part of the Law School's Annual Senior Citizen's Law Day.

The student-led event has become a critical source of legal help for elderly from Schenectady, Troy and Albany, and drawing many from further regions. 

“It’s providing legal services to those who need it most,” Nic Rangel told the Troy Record. Rangel, a post graduate fellow, organized the event with volunteer students as part of the school's pro bono program.
