Pro Bono and You

Since its founding in 1996, the Feinstein Institute for Legal Service has provided hundreds of RWU School of Law students with varied and numerous opportunities for pro bono service that benefit people in the local communities and beyond.  If you are interested in learning about others in the legal profession who are passionately committed to providing pro bono service, here is a list of recent publications in the Law Library along with other resources from the American Bar Association.

The 2013 February issue of the ABA Journal includes the cover story Working for Free: Lawyers Incorporating Pro Bono into their Lives Talk about its Rewards, Challenges.  “Each of these stories is different, sometimes wildly different. But the one thing they share is a new, personal understanding of the professional obligation that is pro bono publico.”

Check out the ABA Center for Pro Bono Exchange for links to relevant blogs and the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono & Public Service website. The Committee’s website is an excellent resource for news, publications, and pro bono programs.
