For Attorneys

What does this mean to me as a practicing attorney?

The PBI staff seeks a broad range of pro bono opportunities for our volunteer students. If you are an attorney who advocates for low-income and disadvantaged Utahns and are interested in the prospect of working with one of our law student volunteers, please contact us.

Students can assist on the following: client intake, interviewing, fact investigation, legal research, writing, and third-year students may be qualified to appear under the 3L practice rule.

Law students can work in your office on a weekly basis throughout the semester or help you with a specific case or project for an extended period of time.  As you fill out our attorney project request form, please be aware of our general guidelines below:

  1. A law student is advised to make project commitments on a semester-by-semester basis due to their changing schedules.
  2. We list pro bono projects year-round, which can be from firm attorneys, solo practitioners & other legal related organizations.
  3. As the attorney supervisor, you will be required to hold a brief exit interview with your student volunteer at the end of the project.
  4. And you will be required to fill out our online Student Evaluation Form once the project is completed.
