MBA Pro Bono Opportunities
Keeping with the spirit of a national and statewide charge to
increase pro bono activity, the Massachusetts Bar Association urges
members to expand their pro bono efforts to help those who need
legal services the most.
For those of you looking for pro bono opportunities, visit MassProBono.org,
a new website that allows lawyers to focus their energy on doing
pro bono work rather than looking for it. The site was launched by
the Volunteer Lawyers Project, in partnership with Pro Bono Net,
the Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Project and the Massachusetts
Bar Association. The centerpiece of the site is a Pro Bono
Opportunities Guide, developed in partnership with the MBA, which
has built an extensive statewide listing of pro bono opportunities.
MassProBono.org builds on the MBA's pro bono catalogue and
incorporates the interactive functions of the Pro Bono Net platform
to create a robust new tool to promote pro bono engagement.
Volunteers are also always needed for the MBA's Public and Community Services Department
programs such as Elder Law Education, Dial-A-Lawyer and Mock
