The Pro Bono Program allows students to gain practical legal experience starting their 1L year.

With the opportunity to do volunteer pro bono work under the supervision of licensed attorneys in HLS’s 11 Student Practice Organizations (SPOs), on an individual basis with a law firm, nonprofit or government entity, or on an HLS spring break pro bono trip, students can make a positive impact in their communities and contribute to the public good.

Students doing pro bono work may receive credit towards HLS’s 50 hours pro bono graduation requirement.
