Individuals in Need of Legal Assistance
Unfortunately, Elon Law and the Pro Bono Board cannot provide assistance to individual members of the public.
Students are unable to provide any sort of legal assistance or advice without the supervision of a licensed attorney. Anyone seeking legal help is encouraged to contact their local Legal Aid office or similar organization. The ABA website may also provide some helpful resources.
Attorneys and Organizations
If you are an attorney working in a pro bono capacity or a nonprofit organization with an attorney already contributing to a project, and you simply need assistance from Elon Law, the Pro Bono Board can attempt to pair you with students pending project approval.
If your organization does not currently have an attorney working on your project, the Board may still consider matching students to assist you. Please be advised, however, that the process of setting up a project can be lengthy, even if the Board approves the project. Thus, the Board is generally unable to provide immediate or emergency student assistance.
