Pro Bono Opportunities
Looking for a pro bono opportunity that fits your schedule? The Massachusetts Bar Association urges members to expand their pro bono efforts to help those who need legal services the most.
MassProBono.org is a 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 MBA. 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.
