Law Student Pro Bono Project
OneJustice turns California's law students into a network of social justice champions, able to respond effectively and efficiently to the needs of underserved Californians. Through OneJustice's Law Student Pro Bono Project, law students are able to serve the needs of both low-income clients and nonprofits. Law students also gain real-world legal skills, increased empathy, and a strengthened commitment to making the world a better place.
The Law Student Pro Bono Project matches law students with nonprofits and court-based programs and the clients who need their help. The pro bono opportunities available involve supervised legal work, are flexible, and are varied to provide students with options to fit their busy schedules.
Examples of student projects include: client interviewing; legal research and writing; case investigation; legislative advocacy; policy analysis; and certified court practice.
Law schools enrolled in the Law Student Pro Bono Project are:
