Developing professional skills through volunteering
May 8th, 2014 by Briana Cummings
Taking on pro bono cases is an oft-used way for new and seasoned lawyers alike to learn new areas of law and/or begin to develop a network for referrals. Here are some resources online to find the right pro bono opportunity for you:
- Probono.net’s Volunteer Guide lists organizations with pro bono opportunities, by state. You can narrow your search to specific areas of law, specific populations served, specific counties, and/or specific type of project.
- The Boston Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyer Project lists specific cases or shorter-term projects. Like probono.net, the site also lists programs and organizations that can refer pro bono cases that might not be listed on the site.
