Claimant Assistance Clinics - 2018


Updated: December 14, 2017

New York Law School is offering free clinics for individuals needing assistance in filing claims under the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund ("VCF"). Clinics will be facilitated by volunteer law students who will provide free assistance to people who would like to file a claim under the VCF without an attorney. Those attending will be able to meet with a law student who will provide information on the application process and will assist in filling out the online claim form. Clinics are by appointment only.
