Alumni Pro Bono Opportunity with Law Students
The DC Bar Pro Bono Program’s Brief Advice and Referral Clinic provides pro bono attorneys and law students the opportunity to meet with DC residents to discuss the legal issues they face, provide brief advice and make any needed referrals . For each volunteer attorney we send, we’re permitted to send a law student volunteer as well. We are currently the only law school offered a designated space in these clinics, and this is a very popular project among our students.
The clinic will take place on Saturday, April 12, and no particular substantive expertise is required – attorneys with the requisite background and reference guides are on hand for volunteers to consult. Note that attorney volunteers must be barred in DC (active or inactive) or have an application pending.
This is an excellent opportunity to provide discrete, time-limited pro bono assistance with no future obligation. It is also a wonderful way to not only benefit the DC community but also inspire CUA Law students.
