Baton Rouge Bar Foundation Pro Bono Project

The Baton Rouge Bar Foundation Pro Bono Project is dedicated to ensuring equal accessibility to justice for our community’s indigent and under-represented and has been making a meaningful change in people's lives since 1986.

The Pro Bono Project volunteers provide critical civil legal services for low-income people in our community who routinely face an influx of life-changing situations: family disintegration, loss of housing, bankruptcy and loss of income through disability, among others.
