What is Partnership in Pro Bono?
The Legal Aid Society of Hawaii is the State's oldest and largest non-profit legal services provider. Established in 1950, we have nine offices statewide, and over 80 staff members (attorneys, paralegals, and administrative personnel) all dedicated to achieving Legal Aid's vision of "Building a Just Society." Legal Aid responds to inquires from approximately 19,000 individuals each year, and an estimated 8,000 of those individuals receive legal services ranging from advice and counsel to full representation.
The Legal Aid Society of Hawaii created partnership in Pro Bono to provide high-quality, full representation in civil legal matters, free of charge to low income and underserved individuals throughout the State of Hawaii. Through Partnerships in Pro Bono, we aim to increase the number of clients served as well as to increase access to full representation in civil legal matters for low-income and working low income individuals.
Partnership in Pro Bono provides you opportunities to serve your community.
