Student proposals: Students who have suggestions for additional partnerships with existing organizations should submit their proposal using this form or by contacting the Pro Bono Program student director. At a minimum, the proposal must identify the host organization (and supervising attorney) and an area or project of interest, which will ideally involve a regular, ongoing commitment, though one-time projects or events will be considered. If initially approved, the student director, in conjunction with the center’s assistant director, will contact the organization about supervising interested students and will create a framework for student participation.
Organization requests for student assistance: Legal organizations seeking student assistance may submit requests using this form or by contacting the Pro Bono Program student director. The organization’s proposal should describe the project, including the skills or substantive knowledge students can expect to gain and any skills or information that are a prerequisite to participation; describe any training that will be offered or required in advance; identify the licensed attorney who will serve as supervisor; propose dates and times for student volunteers; and specify the number of students needed. Preference will be given to ongoing opportunities, though one-time projects or events will be considered.
