If you are an attorney

The UNC Law Pro Bono Program solicits pro bono projects from practicing attorneys interested in student assistance in providing pro bono legal services. The Pro Bono Program will advertise these projects and match interested students with the supervising attorney. Student responsibilities for submitted pro bono projects can include research, writing, client in-take, litigation preparation, investigation, community education, and advocacy. If you have any questions, please e-mail the Attorney Projects Coordinator.

The Pro Bono Program organizes clinics and trips throughout the year to provide legal services to North Carolina residents. These projects range from divorce to advance directives to consumer protection. We are always in need of lawyers to volunteer to supervise our students during clinics.

If you are interested in volunteering in this capacity and would like more information about upcoming clinics and how you can get involved, please e-mail the program's faculty supervisor, Allison Standard.

If you are a student

Students with ideas for pro bono projects are encouraged to make them a reality. The Pro Bono Program helps to connect students with supervising attorneys, faculty, organizations, and community partners so that the students' projects will be successful. If you are a student who has an idea for a project, please fill out ourDIY Pro Bono Project Form (Word) and submit it to your Class Coordinator or the Director of the Pro Bono Program.

If You Are a Student Group

The Pro Bono Program works with many student groups and organizations at Carolina Law to assist with pro bono project needs. If you are a member of a student group with an idea for a pro bono project, please contact the Pro Bono Board's Student Group Projects Coordinator.

Student group leaders should also make use of the Student Group Pro Bono DIY Guide10 Steps to Planning a Successful Group ProjectPro Bono Guidelines, and Pro Bono Coordinator Transition Plan.

Student Contract

All students who have signed up for a project from the Attorney Projects bulletin board, a Winter Break project, a Spring Break project, or other similar projects that students may undertake through the Pro Bono Program have agreed to comply with the terms of the   Pro Bono Contract.  Depending on the circumstances, the Pro Bono Program may have you sign the Pro Bono Contract directly. Regardless of whether you sign it directly, however, you agree to abide by the terms of the Pro Bono Contract whenever you commit to one of the aforementioned pro bono projects.
