Remote Pro Bono Opportunities in the Time of COVID-19
For attorneys looking to give back while sheltering in place, here is a current listing of pro bono opportunities that are fully remote from training to service delivery. Please keep in mind that information is changing quickly, and we will keep this as up to date as possible. Many organizations will have additional pro bono opportunities that can be done partially remotely, particularly if you have already been onboarded by that organization and/or if you can make an ongoing commitment to the matter when the courts re-open. For a comprehensive directory of pro bono opportunities in Illinois, see the Online Pro Bono Opportunity Guide. If you have questions about pro bono generally, contact Samira Nazem.
Pro bono attorneys play a critical role in making the justice system more fair and accessible for everyone. Learn more about how you can use your legal skills to help people in need, and how your support for the CBF is improving the overall pro bono system and expanding pro bono services in our community.
