Best Practices in Pro Bono


The Best Practices in Pro Bono Guides were created to provide a model for pro bono programs and increase consistency in pro bono work across organizations. These guides present concise practical information on implementing and maintaining pro bono projects.

If you’re reading this guide as a law student, you’ll notice that much of it is written for your administrators. That doesn’t mean that you can’t make use of these materials yourself! If your school doesn’t have a pro bono program--or it has one you’d like to improve upon—-we hope this document will be helpful you jump-start conversations with your faculty and administrators.
