Lawyers Journal

Pro Bono Opportunities Guide available online

For many years, the Massachusetts Bar Association has offered to its members an opportunity to access statewide and local organizations that are in need of pro bono services from attorneys, law students and paralegals. These services can range from actual client representation to the training of staff. The MBA supports attorneys in the commonwealth in their efforts to provide pro bono services to those of limited means. Listed online are more than 100 agencies with a wide range of legal needs.

To identify a volunteer opportunity that meets your needs, you may search by keyword, category and/or county. To access this information, visit: www.massbar.org/publications/pbog/. Be sure to check back throughout the year to stay aware of seasonal opportunities or late additions to the guide.

Help us expand the Pro Bono Opportunities Guide

If you currently volunteer for an organization which is not listed in the guide, or are aware of other organizations in need of pro bono assistance, please let us know so that we may offer them an opportunity to be listed in the guide. Additionally, if you have found a pro bono opportunity through the guide, we’d like to hear from you. Contact the Community Services Department at (617) 338-0695 or [e-mail communityservices].
