Pro Bono Volunteer Opportunities

Seeking Foreign Language Interpreters

Harvard Law School is seeking foreign language speakers to interpret with clients in our Clinical Programs. At legal clinic offices on-campus at the Law School, law students and attorneys serve individual clients on a range of matters including immigration, family law, employment, housing, criminal defense, and small business support. Foreign language interpreters and translators are vital in supporting our commitment to serving a diverse population of those in need.  Please share your talents and time with us. Only Harvard Affiliates are eligible to volunteer. 

We are launching a new version of our Language Access Program volunteer database.  You can sign up online here.  Please share your language proficiency, your availability, and your contact information.  You can edit these settings at any time.  As needs arise, a law student or administrator in one of our clinics or Student Practice Organizations may contact you asking you to volunteer for written or verbal translation with a specific client or event.  You can participate as your time and availability allows. 

Eligible for hours towards the HLS pro bono requirement.

Thank you for your interest and your time. Please contact clinical@law.harvard.edu if you have any questions.
