How to get involved...
Are you looking for a lawyer? Probono.net/NC is a lawyer-to-lawyer network and does not provide referral information directly for people looking to find a lawyer. If you need to find a lawyer, please visit http://www.lawhelp.org/nc.
Are you a private practitioner looking to volunteer? Contact Legal Aid to find out more about volunteer opportunities in your area. Once you have started volunteering, we suggest you sign up for the Advocate Resource Center which will give you access to materials related to one or more practice areas. Within a day of submitting your information, you will get a password and can start using the materials in your pro bono practice.
Are you a law firm? There are a number of ways law firms can support Probono.net/NC. Firms can:
- Encourage attorneys to sign up to volunteer! Legal Aid is always looking for new volunteers and all volunteers have access to the Advocate Resource Center.
- Provide financial support to fight to reduce homelessness, protect families from violence, abate consumer scams, and secure basic needs for children in North Carolina. If you are interested in making a contribution, donate online or contact us for information.
Are you a legal service provider or public interest law group? There are a number of ways other legal aid organizations can get involved with Probono.net/NC. Legal aid programs can:
- Encourage staff and pro bono volunteers to join the Advocate Resource Center to share their expertise and learn about other practice areas.
- Help serve more people in need. Need help placing a case with a pro bono attorney? Or maybe you have a pro bono attorney interested in serving clients you cannot serve? Let's work together.
Are you a law school clinic or law student? We collaborate with law schools in many ways and welcome the involvement of law clinics and students in our work. If you are interested in working together, contact us.
