The Breaking Barriers Pro Bono Assistance Project is helping individuals obtain and correct their RAP sheets and apply for a Certificate of Relief from Disability or a Certificate of Good Conduct. Students will work with supervising attorneys to help clients fill out the necessary paperwork to obtain their RAP sheets and apply for a certificate. The certificate is an official acknowledgement that an individual has been rehabilitated. The picture shows student Bill Vega and supervising attorney, and Touro alum, Liz Justesen, advising a client on the next steps to come after the client's RAP sheet has been obtained and reviewed.

Thanks to all who participated in the Backpack Pirate Challenge - collecting school supplies for Long Island's homeless children. The drive was a HUGE success thanks to everyone's generosity and support.

PILOT was awarded Student Organization of the Year!  Seen here are PILOT board members Brittany Mangain (2L FTD), Suzanne Valles (3L FTD), Tiffany Femiano (3L FTD), John Nicodemo (2L FTD), Erika Last (2L FTD).

Students from Duke Law School visited Touro Law Center's Disaster Relief Clinic in October 2013 to work with Superstorm Sandy victims. The students had the opportunity to work with Touro Law staff attorneys, meet with clients, and even visit the Suffolk County Supreme Court where they visited Judge Spinner in his chambers. Law students from across the country are planning pro bono service trips to Touro Law to help with Sandy recovery efforts. For additional information, please call Thomas Maligno, Director of ProBono at (631) 761-7033.
