Why take pro bono cases? Attorneys and their firms benefit from pro bono cases by:
  • Earning free CLE credit at the rate of 1 hour of ethics credit for each 8 hours spent on pro bono matters referred by CLC
  • A source of genuine self-esteem and career satisfaction
  • Possible chances for favorable publicity
  • Helping to improve the public image of attorneys
  • A chance for less experienced lawyers learn to deal with clients, communicate with and influence other parties and lawyers, settle some disputes and litigate others
  • Receiving referrals from the CLC of clients who can afford attorneys
  • Using the CLC as a referral agency to talk with needy people who may call your firm to determine their real needs and refer them to the best source of help
  • Comply with ethics requirements under Rule 6.1

Who else volunteers?

Paralegals, law students, college students who are interested in careers in law and other interested parties.

Students and paraprofessionals benefit by:

  • Gaining experience talking to clients
  • Exposure to public interest law
  • Sense of satisfaction and fulfillment from helping others
