Pro Bono Resources

One of the New Lawyers Section’s top priorities is to encourage new attorneys to participate in pro bono opportunities. The section feels this way because pro bono is a fantastic way to give back to our communities while, at the same time, offering a chance for new attorneys to develop skills in areas of law they desire to practice in. As such, the New Lawyers Section encourages all new attorneys to participate in pro bono on a yearly basis.  Below we have cultivated links to resources we think are especially beneficial in making pro bono work more accessible to new lawyers.
