Non-Case Opportunities for Pro-Bono
We offer a variety of alternatives to client representation. Whether mentoring or recruiting other volunteers, training other lawyers, or educating the community, we can support your interests, availability, and expertise.
Below are some ways that you can connect with our mission:
Lend your expertise and help us ensure high quality training and support for our volunteers. We are always looking for lawyers to donate their time training our volunteers in substantive matters. Not to worry, we handle all of the CLE certifications, recording, registration, and marketing.
And yes, this counts toward your pro bono reporting requirement with the Bar.
Ensuring that our website content and support materials are up to date can be a daunting task. You can give back by helping us review and update manuals, legal advice checklists and forms, and client facing legal information on our website. These resources are invaluable support for our volunteers and our clients.
We have law students, staff lawyers, and other volunteer lawyers in need of mentors. Mentors are a vital component to the services we provide clients. Often our volunteers are new to an area of law or have come upon a complicated fact pattern. Whatever the reason, your assistance in answering questions and providing actionable next steps can make all the difference in the case.
Often our clients don’t know that they could benefit from legal advice or representation or that these services are even available to them at no-cost. Our staff lawyers and pro bono volunteers play an integral role in reaching the community. Community education presentations let our clients know that we are here to help and why they should reach out. A client may believe they don’t need estate planning services because they don’t own anything, but what they may not realize is how much they could benefit from a living will or durable power of attorney. Help us spread the word!
Another way to help is by spreading the word about us. Whether through your social media channels (we provide the content to post), encouraging a colleague to help out at clinic, or speaking to your bar association or firm about putting together a project, we rely on your support. Your opinion matters and goes long way to leverage the work we do to support the most vulnerable in our community.
