Pro Bono Net

Lawyers serving the public good.

Welcome to!

This site provides resources for pro bono and legal services attorneys and others working to assist low income or disadvantaged clients. Please join our community and start making a difference today!

Pro Bono Net News

Pro Bono Net is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, in collaboration with the Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program, to support and engage both veterans and volunteer attorneys.  The new site leverages the technology platform, which is used to support broad-based networks of legal aid, civil rights and pro bono lawyers across the country. Click here to learn more about this exciting collaboration.

The Need For Pro Bono

The need for legal services among the poor is overwhelming. According to an American Bar Association study, at least 40% of low and moderate-income households experience a legal problem each year. Yet studies show that the collective civil legal aid effort is meeting only about 20% of the legal needs of low-income people.

Who We Are

Pro Bono Net is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing access to justice through innovative uses of technology and increased volunteer lawyer participation.

Watch our video celebrating our 15th anniversary celebration and learn more about how Pro Bono Net and our partners are bridging the justice gap.
