Current Opportunities and Needs

Do you know of an organization, group or association that is assisting people in need of pro bono legal services?  If so, please let us know.

Part of the mandate of the OBA Pro Bono Subcommittee is to help improve the information and resources available for those interested in supplying or in need of pro bono legal services.  Our main purpose is to encourage lawyers to do pro bono work and connect them with opportunities to do so.  For this, we need your help.  Please feel free to provide a link to the website for your organization, association or committee or provide us with a description of your project and a contact number for review by the OBA Pro Bono Subcommittee.  We are happy to post current and relevant pro bono legal initiatives to share them with members of the OBA.   Please forward information to the OBA Pro Bono Subcommittee by sending it to:
