Pro Bono Policy

The School of Law encourages all law students to perform public service activities while in law school, without academic credit or financial compensation. The Law School will publicize opportunities for such service whenever possible.

The Law School has adopted a pro bono recognition program for law students who engage in significant amounts of public service work. Details about that program can be found here.

For additional questions, including how attorneys or organizations can recruit law students for volunteer projects, please contact Megan Lovett, Assistant Director of Public Interest and Pro Bono Initiatives, at or (412) 383-3523.
