The Middle District of Alabama Federal Defenders Program in Montgomery, Alabama is continuing their tradition of hosting BC Law pro bono spring break volunteers during this semester’s spring break from March 7-11, 2022. The Federal Defenders Program will host up to two (2) BC Law pro bono volunteers for approximately 20 hours during the week, Monday through Friday. This is a great way to gain legal experience while serving the community and logging pro bono hours towards the BC Law Pro Bono Program’s voluntary 50 hour pro bono pledge.
Please review the Federal Defenders Program website to learn more about their work. Interested students can apply by emailing to BC Law’s Public Interest and Pro Bono Program Director, Michelle Grossfield:
- a brief statement of interest and relevant experience; and
- a pdf version resume.
Volunteers will be selected based on interest, relevant experience and timeliness of application until all volunteer opportunities are filled. Resumes used to apply will be forwarded to the Federal Defenders Program, if selected to participate. Pro bono volunteers will have opportunities for research projects on defense matters and supervision by federal defenders.
