Looking for opportunities to do good and gain legal experience? Look no further than the National Pro Bono Opportunities Guide, a project jointly sponsored by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service, the ABA Center for Pro Bono and Pro Bono Net.
The Guide lists various programs across the United States that need volunteer legal professionals. After you choose the state that interests you, you will be taken to the listing of the programs in that state. The directory offers additional filters to narrow your search options by county, area of law, the population groups served and the volunteers’ desired level of experience. The last filter allows you to search projects for law students, transactional lawyers, mentors, paralegals and others. You can also search by keywords.
