Pro Bono Net News


In honor of National Volunteer Week 2018, which takes place this week, April 15-21, Pro Bono Net would like to extend our gratitude to the thousands of volunteer lawyers who make a huge difference for those in need.  For those at risk of losing their homes, income and even their children, volunteer lawyers are an indispensable resource. Now more than ever it is important for us to support our most vulnerable communities. This wouldn't be possible without the immense efforts of volunteer lawyers around the country and the organizations that facilitate volunteering. Read our press release thanking volunteer lawyers across the country.
 

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.
