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:
- A law student is advised to make project commitments on a semester-by-semester basis due to their changing schedules.
- We list pro bono projects year-round, which can be from firm attorneys, solo practitioners & other legal related organizations.
- As the attorney supervisor, you will be required to hold a brief exit interview with your student volunteer at the end of the project.
- And you will be required to fill out our online Student Evaluation Form once the project is completed.
Contact PBI at 801.581.5418 or send us a message if you are an attorney & would like to volunteer at one of our PBI/ULS Legal Clinics.
