Welcome to Legal Aid of North Carolina's ProBono site, with information on pro bono opportunities for lawyers in North Carolina.

Pro bono service plays an important part in our state’s justice system. Every year, lawyers perform tens of thousands of hours of volunteer service for organizations and people who otherwise could not afford legal help. These contributions, worth millions on the private market, provide the only access to our justice system for many North Carolinians.

Recognizing the importance of pro bono service, the State Bar, through its Voluntary Pro Bono Publico Service rule, encourages its members to provide 50 hours of volunteer service each year. Since 2017, attorneys who meet this goal and report their service to the Pro Bono Resource Center are inducted into the annual class of North Carolina’s Pro Bono Honor Society.

The goal of this site is to make it easy for lawyers to find pro bono opportunities that match their interests, skill sets and schedules. If you are an attorney who wants to give your time and talents to those in need, then browse our opportunities database and check out our events calendar to find ways that you can help.
