The Pro Se Legal Assistance Program is a free service offered by Hofstra University’s Maurice A. Deane School of Law, and is staffed by members of the law school, including an attorney, a law professor, and law students. The Program is not part of, nor run by, the United States District Court. The Program staff works for Hofstra University.
The Program provides free information, advice, and limited scope legal assistance to non- incarcerated pro se litigants who have filed, or intend to file, a civil case in the Central Islip
Eastern District of New York Federal Court. The Program seeks to enhance access to justice and improve the litigation process for litigants and the Court by helping pro se litigants navigate the court system.
The Program assists litigants with federal civil cases, including cases involving civil rights, employment discrimination, labor law, and social security benefits. The Program cannot assist individuals while they are incarcerated, but can provide assistance to litigants once they are released from custody.
