The Pro Bono Program at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law consists of faculty, administrators and students working together to ensure that law students have an ample number of quality pro bono opportunities and that public access to these opportunities is as easy as possible.
At any one time, the Pro Bono Program may include about 20 student-run pro bono projects, as well as pro bono efforts that law students can do independently in accordance with policies. Some of our student-run projects are run completely in-house, such as the Homeless Legal Assistance Project. Others are outreach projects that work in conjunction with community agencies, such as the Family Lawyers Assistance Project.
We are looking for volunteer attorneys to assist our student organizations implement these pro bono projects. Some student organizations would like a attorney to supervise them during specific pro bono events; others need a volunteer attorney to advise them during project planning or about their chosen focus area.
The descriptions of each pro bono student group are listed below. If you are interested in volunteering with or knowing more about a particular student group, again, please check the box under the description. A student leader of that organization will then be in touch with you regarding how they need an attorney's help in accomplishing their goals. Please note that, simply by indicating an interest in volunteering with a student group or by asking for information about them, you are not committing yourself to volunteer in any way. Also, if you do choose to volunteer, commitment time may range from very little to more extensive, depending on your availability.
Thank you so much for your time and your willingness to engage in pro bono service. If you have any questions about the Pro Bono Program at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, or about filling out the form below, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
