You belong here
All backgrounds welcome.
Lawyers who join We The Action come from law offices big and small; they work for law firms, companies, nonprofits, and in government; some are stay-at-home parents or retirees. They range in experience from recent law school graduates to seasoned advocates. If you are a member of a state bar in good standing and licensed to practice law, you belong here.
Everyone can help
You have the skills to make a difference.
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 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.
