Pro Bono Training & Scheduling

Training

Each semester, trainings are hosted for students getting involved in pro bono projects. Recorded training sessions are available for students unable to attend live. Online viewing links are posted below.

In conjunction with completing a pro bono training, students must submit the Pro Bono Code of Conduct and read the accompanying memorandum regarding the professional responsibilities of law students engaged in pro bono work. Students also should review the Pro Bono FAQs to answer any questions about pro bono generally or a particular project.
