The Center for Pro Bono is a project of the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service. The Center provides technical assistance and planning advice to a wide range of constituents in the field, including bar associations, pro bono programs, legal services offices, bar leaders, law schools, corporate counsel, judges and government attorneys. The Center also produces a number of publications, maintains a national Clearinghouse of materials on a wide range of pro bono topics and operates the Peer Consulting Project. The Peer Consulting Project involves peer consulting teams providing on-site technical assistance and planning advice to bar associations, legal services PAI programs, law schools and other groups activating or expanding pro bono programs.
In November 2000, the ABA, through a generous gift by Melita and William Grunow, created the Pro Bono Child Custody Project. This Project, a joint effort of the ABA’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service and Family Law Section, will create a nationwide network of programs and volunteers to represent children in custody situations. The Project will support lawyers’ efforts through training and substantive materials that will be made available on the Project’s website. The Project is housed in the Center for Pro Bono.
Staff lists are only available to legal aid advocates.
