Pro Bono Net

Lawyers serving the public good.

Southeast Louisiana Legal Services' North Shore Pro Bono Project

The purpose of Southeast Louisiana Legal Services' North Shore Pro Bono Project is to provide free legal services in various civil matters to low-income residents of both St. Tammany and Washington Parishes who qualify.

Whether you are a seasoned attorney actively engaged in the practice of law, a newly admitted or young lawyer interested in gaining experience, or a retired attorney looking to stay involved, volunteering provides a rewarding opportunity to serve the poor and improve the general welfare of our community.

You can volunteer to be a pro bono lawyer, to be a pro bono curator, or to be a pro bono attorney mentor to another volunteer lawyer.
