Pro Bono Experiential Learning Requirement

Prior to graduation, each student must engage in fifty (50) hours of law-related pro bono work.  All work satisfying this requirement must be donated; neither monetary compensation nor academic credit may be exchanged for this work.  Pro bono work, as used in this section, means working with indigent clients, non-profit organizations (including, but not limited to 501(c)(3) organizations), public interest groups, the judiciary, government, and private practitioners handling pro bono cases.  The Law School’s Associate Director of Pro Bono Programs will oversee the placement of students in pro bono opportunities and will certify satisfactory completion of this requirement.  Every graduating student must complete his or her pro bono work no later than thirty (30) days in advance of their anticipated graduation date in order to allow for processing.
