Acc Legal

Our collection of legal resources is carefully curated for members around the world. “Several times over the years, students have told us they don`t have the financial resources to access legal advice,” says Steven Christopher, CCA Associate Vice-President of Student Accessibility and Social Support Resources (SASSR). “Whether it`s disputes between tenants and landlords or custody or maintenance issues facing our student parents, our partnership with VLS provides our students with access to high-quality pro bono legal counsel to resolve these and other legal issues.” It is recommended to register. Participants who register on the VLS website will have a 30-minute window of opportunity to meet with a lawyer to get an initial review of their legal issue. Participants must be eligible for income if pro bono legal services are specified during further review. The Corporate Counsel Classic, held in conjunction with the CCA Annual Meeting, is the premier golf, spa and networking event in the legal community. This world-class event offers excellent networking opportunities with in-house consultants while playing golf on a professional golf course, experiencing authentic wellness activities holistically, and actively engaging in-house consultants at always lively evening rates at the evening awards networking reception For over 40 years, VLS ensures that poverty is not an obstacle to justice by helping needy residents of Central Texas.

As an abundance of caution, CCA will host the 2020 Annual Meeting entirely virtually. You`ll have the excitement of a face-to-face meeting, with the advantage of never missing a session – but this time with no travel costs and changing wardrobes. A discussion of how people affected by racism and their allies can voice their concerns. This event far exceeded my expectations. It was really well done and incredibly uplifting.
