Casner & Edwards (Boston)

Please join the Victim Rights Law Center in leading a new response to sexual violence by participating in our Rape Survivors’ Law Project pro bono attorney training!

All VRLC clients are sexual assault victims in Massachusetts seeking free civil legal assistance. Cases are screened by VRLC staff attorneys. Volunteer attorneys represent clients on discrete legal issues. These cases are extremely rewarding, short-term, and can provide powerful professional opportunities. Our attorneys are happy to mentor volunteers.
