Students on Pro Bono Trip 2008, New Orleans

During winter and spring break, UNC Law students go on trips outside the Triangle to offer pro bono services across North Carolina.

How to get involved with Pro Bono

  • Attend the Pro Bono Program 1L Kickoff, held each year at the beginning of September.
  • Sign up for a project on our bulletin board by the student mailboxes. These postings are updated several times a week as students sign up, and are requests by attorneys for law student help.
  • Apply for our Winter and Spring Break Trips. Keep an eye on the law school calendar for upcoming interest meeting dates and application deadlines.
  • Sign up for a Winter or Spring Break project, which provides an opportunity to work with an attorney during break.
  • Doing work that you think counts as Pro Bono, or interested in starting your own project? Create a DIY Pro Bono Project by downloading the DIY Kit.
  • Attend our special events, like an Alumni Networking Event, where you meet individually with Pro bono alumni and learn tips on how to talk about your Pro Bono work during job interviews.
  • Buy a t-shirt, go to a food truck rodeo, or buy breakfast during our Winter Break Project sign-up event! All proceeds go to funding our trips.
  • Get to know the members of the Pro Bono Board, and stop by the Pro Bono Office during our office hours. We love to meet new students interested in Pro Bono.
  • Apply in September to join the Pro Bono Board as 1L Class Coordinator, or apply in the spring for an open Coordinator position that suits your talents and interests
