The Pro Bono Program gives attorneys who are interested in disability civil rights law, special education law, cancer advocacy and other related opportunities to hone their advocacy skills and to make a difference in the community.
Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) - CLRC is seeking lawyers with experience in employment law, family law, estate planning, government benefits, or health insurance law to join its Professional Panel and help people with their cancer-related legal concerns. CLRC individually screens and refers callers with legal issues who need more in-depth assistance. Professional Panel pro bono attorneys can typically help people resolve their legal issues through limited representation, such as meeting with a referred cancer patient about legal problems or advocating on a cancer patient's behalf by making telephone calls or writing letters.
Disability Litigation Program and Education Advocacy Program (EAP) - Partner with us to challenge systemic discrimination through impact and class action litigation on behalf of people with disabilities. Our cases set precedent, create models for systems change nationwide, and stop discrimination against thousands of people. Additionally, represent a family pro bono to secure special education services for a student with a disability or represent an individual with disabilities to resolve an ADA dispute that needs an attorney's assistance but not litigation.
