    We The Action - Our Values and Principles

    You don’t have to be in a courtroom or a seasoned expert to help change the world. Whatever your legal skills may be—litigation, transactions, policy analysis, legal research, or if you are looking to learn a new area of law—our nonprofit partners want your help. If you want to make a difference, We The Action has a project for you.

    Designed by and for busy lawyers

    Projects that fit your schedule.

    We The Action - Our Values and Principles

    We have projects you can do from the office, a coffee shop, or your couch. Time commitment levels vary, including short-term research projects that can be completed in less time than it takes to binge watch a few episodes of your favorite TV show.
