Pro Bono Center

The Pro Bono Center ("the Center") recruits and trains volunteer attorneys to provide pro bono legal assistance to low-income clients. The Center provides a very unique service in that it acts as the nexus between volunteer attorneys and 34 civil legal service organizations that provide direct legal help to the poor. The Center provides volunteers with free training, free online research, mentoring, and malpractice insurance. The Center's Divorce Law Project assists low-income clients with no-fault divorces.
