ACLCE is always looking for Volunteers to be involved with our programs.  We are pleased to have the Junior League of Birmingham volunteers working with our Teen Court program.  We are thankful for the Cumberland School of Law students who participate in Cumberland Street Law.  Their work in area schools serves as an excellent community outreach service. We have been fortunate to have volunteers who have served as judges for our We the People Hearings.  We would welcome more volunteers who would like to get involved as judges and/or mentors to our We the People teams throughout the state.  Please message us for more information.
