Since our inception we have believed in the value of an education steeped in legal theory and practical experience, of which the pro bono involvement of our students is a critical component.

You have the opportunity to provide pro bono services in the community with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and private law firms or practitioners. We also encourage students to develop new pro bono projects — for example, this is how our Veterans Legal Assistance Project started.
