About the Event

Dear Colleagues,`

 MAPS-MCRC-MELAW is holding a clinic on Sunday, April 19th from 2-00pm - 5:00 pm.  These are difficult times for everyone and community members who attend our monthly legal clinics are likely to have more legal issues rather than fewer. MELAW intends to continue diligently hosting legal clinics in association with the Muslim Community Resource Center (MCRC) remotely using audio and video platforms such as Zoom. Therefore, our upcoming April 19th clinic (and possibly future clinics) will not be held at MAPS in Redmond, WA. Attorneys will instead be meeting with clients over Zoom, avoiding any in-person contact. Attorneys will be able to earn one CLE credit for every 60 minutes devoted to providing pro-bono legal services.   Please reply to this email if you are available to volunteer for the clinic. Based on previous clinics and the current pandemic, we expect to receive demand for legal assistance in the following practice areas: 

  • Housing 
  • Family Law
  • Employment 
  • Immigration 

We will be working to ensure we staff the clinic with attorneys to represent these practice areas, and any additional practice areas that are pre-registered clients request. I will be in touch in the coming days with additional information as we get a clearer picture of client registrations. 

 Please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns. 

 Thank you for your support!   Sincerely,

 Tanya Fekri

MELAW Legal Clinic Co-Chair
