The list below provides some (not all) of the cases for which pro bono attorneys are needed. Assuming cases on a pro bono basis also provides attorneys with valuable litigation experience. Legal aid programs actively recruit, train, mentor, and co-counsel with volunteer (pro bono) attorneys to help them handle the many complex and changing legal issues unique to the practice of civil poverty law.
To volunteer pro bono service for any of the cases, simply telephone the "Contact" person. Click on office listed at the top of each case/project to view the local PAI ("Private Attorney Involvement") coordinator's name/contact information.
If you don't see a case from your county listed below, connect with the pro bono coordinator in your area to find out where your pro bono service is needed.
