Pro Bono

Pro Bono Overview

The mission of the Pro Bono Program is to help law students develop an awareness of their ethical and professional responsibilities to provide service to their community.

Participation in the program provides students with the opportunity to perform valuable community service while learning about the legal needs of the underserved and developing the legal skills and gaining the experience necessary to help meet those needs.

Pro bono work is volunteer legal and non-legal work done without credit or compensation that law students perform to benefit individuals, groups or organizations whose resources are limited. This is your chance to make a difference!

Participation in the program provides students with the opportunity to perform valuable community service while learning about the legal needs of the underserved and developing the legal skills and gaining the experience necessary to help meet those needs. Pro bono work not only benefits the community, but allows you to get the kind of hands-on experience and feedback that is difficult to find elsewhere.

Beginning with the Fall 2015 entering class, all students will be required to perform at least 10 legal pro bono hours before registering for their last semester of classes.
