University of Virginia School of Law--Pro Bono Program

Sponsor/Supervise University of Virginia Law Student Pro Bono Projects

Help UVA Law Students Contribute to the COVID-19 Response and Ripple Effects

Posted April 8, 2020

Background & Context

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, law students at the University of Virginia are seeking volunteer opportunities to use their newly developing legal skills to to assist impacted individuals and communities.

Immediate Problem

The University of Virginia School of Law's Pro Bono Program seeks lawyers at nonprofit organizations and law firms who can provide supervision, mentoring and training for law students volunteering for remote projects.

Work & Deliverables

To be eligible, lawyers who volunteer as pro bono supervisors must work on the project pro bono through their employers. Attorneys working at nonprofit organizations are eligible, and attorneys at law firms may also sponsor student projects, as long as those projects solely support pro bono work of the attorney/law firms. Students must be able to complete projects remotely. Projects must involve substantive legal work, and the volunteer attorney must directly supervise student work. Projects can vary in length, as students have different capacity to work on projects. Students may want projects as short as a couple of hours or as long as several months. Generally, projects requiring 5-10 hours/week are ideal.
