Join us this Monday, 9/11, at 6:10 PM in Room 124 to learn about Yale's HAVEN Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP)! The HAVEN MLP offers everyone, including first-semester 1Ls, the chance to work directly with patients, help New Haven’s low-income residents gain access to legal representation, and get exposure to legal issues such as immigration, housing, wage theft, domestic violence, and medical debt.
What's the HAVEN MLP? We partner with New Haven Legal Assistance, the Yale School of Public Health, and Yale Medical School to provide legal referral services to patients at HAVEN, a student-run free medical clinic held in downtown New Haven every Saturday for people without health insurance. As a HAVEN MLP volunteer, you'll have firsthand interaction with people who truly need and appreciate your help. The time commitment is flexible and relatively low—generally, we ask that people commit to two Saturday morning shifts per semester.
