Do Pro Bono Anywhere

Helping law students, volunteers, and legal professionals connect with volunteer opportunities that assist legal services providers and their clients both remotely and at our local offices.  

Pro Bono Team Mission Statement:

To support and enhance private attorney and other volunteer recruitment, outreach, and recognition for Pro Bono efforts throughout mixed urban-rural service areas by creating streamlined and uniform systems that support and implement Pro Bono best practices and case management. We strive to make Pro Bono assistance accessible, efficient, and advantageous for all Pro Bono attorneys and volunteers in order to increase the number of clients who receive Pro Bono representation, the substantive law practice areas in which Pro Bono legal services are provided, and the number of clients who receive extended representation through Pro Bono legal services.

Volunteers Needed

Materials and trainings are available for volunteers to learn about the new laws related to expungement of criminal convictions and instances in which a client can seek a motion for expungement. 

Contact Ronette Steele to volunteer to provide legal advice and counsel to eligible individuals with marijuana convictions by sending an email to or register here to volunteer and select "Re-entry" as an area you want to assist with!
