Welcome to the DC Consortium of Legal Services Providers Area of probono.net/dc!
The Consortium is a coalition of 34 member organizations, all of which provide direct legal services to low-income DC residents. The Consortium's mission is to coordinate the delivery, expand the availability and improve the quality of legal services and advocacy for poor and disadvantaged people and groups of people in the District of Columbia.
Many of the Consortium's 34 member organizations have robust pro bono programs. Your help is greatly needed. Please browse a "virtual pro bono fair" of some of the organizations and a complete directory of pro bono opportunities to find an organization that best matches your personal interests and professional goals.
Consortium members meet on a monthly basis, with leadership committees and work and affinity groups convening separately throughout the year. Consortium meetings and activities are generally open to all individuals who work in the legal services community or who are interested in issues impacting low-income clients. Individuals from a broad spectrum of public interest organizations, local law schools, private law firms, and DC Bar entities are active in the Consortium.
General meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, at Venable LLP, 600 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC.
