Pro Bono Opportunities

Each year, the Law Foundation receives many more requests for help than we can handle. As a result, the Law Foundation relies on pro bono attorneys to offer their dedication, time, and legal skills to advance justice and help myriad of those in need. Our Pro Bono Program works to ensure that pro bono partners have meaningful and interesting work and are provided adequate mentoring and assistance from our expert attorney staff.

As follows are descriptions of our life-changing pro bono programs. We welcome inquiries about other pro bono opportunities, including customized team-building opportunities for law firms and general counsel departments.

Co-Counsel Opportunities

The Law Foundation relies on pro bono attorneys and law firms to enable us to achieve equity and justice through litigation.
