March Pro Bono Newsletter
3L Reporting For Certificates: The deadline for 3Ls to report pro bono hours in order to receive the NC Bar Association certificate at the Commencement ceremony is Friday, April 19 at 5:00pm. Please log your hours HERE.
Summer Pro Bono Projects: Taking classes this summer? Staying in Greensboro with free time on your hands? If you would like to get a little extra legal experience over your summer break consider volunteering with a pro bono project. Projects available this summer include Guardian ad Litem and criminal records expunction with IRC Greensboro. Guardian ad Litem begins their summer training sessions at the law school in June. The IRC project will provide morning and afternoon sessions one day per week starting after Memorial Day holiday.
For the most current information on these opportunities please visit our projects description webpage.
Final Spring Pro Bono Interest Meeting: More information on summer opportunities will be available at our final interest meeting of the year on Monday, April 22 from 12:15-12:45 in Room 204. We also seek input on the types of new projects most interest the Elon Law community and general feedback on the pro bono projects offered this semester.
If you have comments or questions about the direction of the pro bono programming at Elon Law please plan on attending this meeting. Treats will be provided in celebration of the pro bono service completed in the 2012-2013 school year.
Pro Bono Spotlight: This month we'd like to spotlight the top pro bono hours earners for each class that we recognized at last week's Reception with the Legal Community honoring pro bono. Kate Shimansky for the 3L class, Christian Robin for the 2L class, and Emily Pfieffer for the 1L class. We thank Kate, Christian, and Emily for their exceptional service.
Each month we like to recognize a student for their legal service work. If you would like to share your experiences with pro bono work and what it has meant to you please let us know.
If you know of an attorney or organization in the community seeking assistance for a project or your student organization would like to be featured in the newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
