ABLE is grateful to work with law students, paralegals, college students, and other members of our communities each year.

Non-lawyers can help in a variety of different ways, including committing to a weekly schedule at ABLE’s office, reviewing and compiling data, helping with driver's license reinstatement or other clinics, and watching and reporting on court proceedings.
