Since 2012, Pro Bono Program students have traveled to Cherokee, N.C., over winter break to work with clients of Legal Aid of Sylva and learn about the Cherokee court system.
Carolina Law students assist pro bono attorneys in providing legal assistance at UNCΓÇÖs Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center on one Friday per month.
During primary and general elections, law students and faculty staff the North Carolina Election Protection hotline, a toll-free nonpartisan resource to assist voters.
Founded in 1997, the UNC School of Law Pro Bono Program is one of the most successful in the country. In 2016 and 2017, over 90 percent of graduating students participated in the program. Through the program, our students participate in projects offering high-quality free legal services to North Carolina residents in need.
Our students log thousands of hours at non-profit organizations, private firms and government agencies throughout the year. The program also coordinates special projects over fall, winter and spring breaks.
Students participate in pro bono work not only to make a difference in their community by serving those with unmet legal needs but also to gain valuable, practical work experience outside the classroom.
Examples of recent projects include:
