Law School Graduates

Legal Assistance of Western New York, Inc. ® provides flexible and remote Pro Bono opportunities for Law Graduates seeking to complete the 50 hour Pro Bono requirement for admission to the New York State Bar. In line with former Chief Judge Lippman's initiative, we encourage Law Graduate volunteers to pledge at least 10 hours of Pro Bono service during their first 2 years of admission, in order to expand the number of admitted attorneys providing services to residents of our 14-county service area.
