Pro Bono Program

The Pro Bono Program is a certificate program designed to enhance the educational process for King Hall students. Pro bono work is volunteer legal work performed without compensation or academic credit and under the supervision of an attorney. Students can volunteer in public interest organizations, government agencies or courts.

Whether students aspire for a career in the public or private sector, providing pro bono service will enhance their legal education. In addition to assisting public service organizations meet their needs, volunteering offers students opportunities to interact with attorneys and gain practical legal work experience.

Participation in the program also provides students recognition for their community service; upon completion of 50 or more hours of pro bono work, students receive a Pro Bono Program certificate.

**PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS AN ACADEMIC CERTIFICATE PROGRAM FOR LAW STUDENTS.  IT IS NOT A PRO BONO LEGAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND WE DO NOT OFFER CONSULTATION OR REPRESENTATION ON LEGAL MATTERS.
