OR Pro Bono Student Network
- Helping Oregon Lawyers & Law Students Work Together on Pro Bono.
The Oregon State Bar Pro Bono Committee, Lewis and Clark Law School, the University of Oregon School of Law and Willamette University College of Law have partnered together to help Oregon attorneys connect with students from the state's three law schools to help with pro bono work. Attorneys receive capable assistance that allows the attorneys to offer more complex legal services for free. Law students receive an opportunity to gain real-world experience while helping the underprivileged obtain desperately-needed legal services. Together, attorneys and law students are working to pass on the commitment to pro bono and to ensure that no one in Oregon lacks a voice in the legal system. Check it out at ORprobonostudent.net today, or find the link in the library under pro bono on this website.
This website is powered by Pro Bono Net - Lawyers serving the public good.
