Pro Bono Resources

Pro Bono Resources

Probono.net is a national online resource for legal aid and pro bono attorneys, law professors and students, and related social services advocates. The site promotes collaboration and makes it easier for pro bono attorneys to get involved, saving them time and connecting them with opportunities, training events, mentors and searchable libraries of practice resources they won’t find anywhere else.

The site is organized by topical “practice areas” and geographic regions, built and maintained by public interest legal organizations and law firms throughout the country. Members include more than 75,000 advocates from hundreds of public interest organizations and private firms.

PSJD offers an online clearinghouse for law students and lawyers to connect with public interest job listings and career-building resources. As a collaborative project among more than 200 American and Canadian law schools, PSJD is a free resource for law students and alumni to search among thousands of public interest job opportunities and employer profiles.

In addition to its database, PSJD offers an online library of educational and career-building resources for those interested in pursuing a career in public service. These resources are publicly available to all website visitors.
