  • Fall Pro Bono Opportunities: Apply by August 31

    As you begin the Fall Semester, keep in mind that it is time to start working towards satisfying the 50-hour Pro Bono Service Requirement (All JD students).

    As you begin the Fall Semester, keep in mind that it is time to start working towards satisfying the 50-hour Pro Bono Service Requirement (All JD students). You can begin doing pro bono work once you have completed one semester of law school. Please be mindful when planning your pro bono service for the year that most projects are not structured for students to earn 50 hours in one semester. Due to the current pandemic some projects will be offered only as remote opportunities while others will be in-person.

    Please check your email for an updated list of the Pro Bono Opportunities that are available for you to enroll in this semester. Training for these projects will take place during the first few weeks of the Fall Semester. If you are interested in participating in any of these projects, please be sure to submit your resume (some projects require a statement of interest and/or interview) and rank your choices in order of preference no later than the registration deadline of Tuesday, August 31, at 12 p.m. Please be sure to list more than one choice as space is limited in all projects. Listing only one opportunity does not increase your chances of being placed in that project.

    If you have questions about any of the projects, or the Pro Bono Requirement, in general, please contact Rashida West (rtw27@drexel.edu), director, Pro Bono & Public Interest programs.
