There are a limited number of hybrid and remote opportunities to volunteer with legal services and nonprofit organizations during BC Law’s spring break (March 6-10). These are excellent opportunities to use your skills to serve underrepresented communities and individuals, connect with local organizations and attorneys engaged in public interest work and gain legal experience.
Pro bono hours volunteered during spring break may also be counted towards BC Law’s voluntary pro bono pledge and Public Interest Designation Program. Participants in these programs are recognized at graduation for their service. Additionally, hours volunteered at some participating organizations may also qualify for New York’s Mandatory Pro Bono Requirement and the MA Supreme Judicial Court’s Pro Bono Honor Roll.
Applications for BC Law’s Pro Bono Spring Break are due on Monday, February 20th at 11:59 PM. Please apply here. Completion of the application form confirms a commitment to volunteer during spring break, if matched with a participating organization
If you have questions about these opportunities or more general questions about pro bono programs and/or requirements, please contact Michelle Grossfield in the CSO or make an appointment on SAGE.
