Pro Bono Net News
This week, Pro Bono Net re-launched the probono.net/ny family of websites with a new look. We're thrilled about how the new, mobile friendly design will benefit our growing network of volunteer attorneys, legal advocates and law students, and our legal services and law firm partners who collaborate with us on probono.net/ny's resources for New York’s public interest legal community. We’re also grateful to the New York State IOLA Fund for its support of this initiative. Check it out and let us know what you think! This is the first of a series of new designs across the probono.net network this year, so stay tuned for more.
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
