About the Pro Bono Collaborative

PBC McAuley House Project

The Pro Bono Collaborative identifies and develops pro bono projects, facilitates ongoing pro bono projects and works to increase access to justice in an effort to leverage and maximize limited resources. The Pro Bono Collaborative is not a referral program where individual attorneys are matched with clients. Instead the Pro Bono Collaborative matches law firms with community organizations to provide pro bono legal assistance in a specific area of law that affects a large number of the organization’s clients and fits within the expertise and/or interest of the law firm’s attorneys. An important goal of the Pro Bono Collaborative is to develop project partnerships, and ultimately long-lasting relationships between law firms and community organizations.  Each Pro Bono Collaborative project partnership includes one or more law firm attorneys, at least one RWU Law student to support the work of the attorney(s) and the community organization's staff.
