Pro bono programs and opportunities
The George Washington Law School is committed to encouraging students to volunteer their legal services. That commitment is reflected, in part, by the Pro Bono Program. In the Program, students provide legal services to those who cannot afford them or who might not otherwise receive those services. Participation in the Program gives students the opportunity to give back to their community by donating their time and legal expertise. Volunteering also allows students to gain practical legal experience, build their resume, and provide valuable opportunities to establish networking contacts. The Pro Bono Program offers many annual events, including: Public Interest & Pro Bono Pre-Orientation Program; Pro Bono Fair; Alternative Spring Break; and a Pro Bono Recognition Ceremony; The Pro Bono Program also offers many opportunities, including: the Animal Welfare Project; the Gulf Recovery Network; the Hypothermia Homeless Family Outreach Pro Bono Project; the Landlord-Tenant Pro Bono Project; the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project; The Veterans Pro Bono Project; and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).
