Support the Pro Bono Initiative

Can I become a member of the Pro Bono Initiative?

Yes! Memberships help support the program and connect law students with the legal services delivery system, which, in turn, helps all those involved in the system: students, agencies, attorneys, and clients. Contributions also help to ensure adequate funding for our staff, and allows further expansion of the program. Members will be recognized on Initiative letterhead and the annual report.

It seeks to instill greater awareness among law students of their ethical responsibility to provide legal services to the disadvantaged.
