There are many ways to get involved with pro bono work at Elon Law. Student organizations and individual students are involved in a number of different projects throughout the year.

Elon Law’s 2020 Pro Bono Board

The student-run Pro Board Board coordinates with students, organizations, faculty, administration, and the legal community to help assure that there are a number of opportunities available and that we are constantly developing new ways to serve the community.

Established in the fall of 2011, the Pro Bono Board has increased awareness among the student body about pro bono opportunities throughout the state and has helped to create additional service projects for students. Students serve through pro bono opportunities, such as the Tax Assistance Program, Wills for Heroes, and the Innocence Project. They also serve through the Humanitarian Immigration Law Clinic, Wills Clinic, and the Guardian ad Litem Clinic, to name just a few.

In addition to organizing new projects, the board provides a monthly newsletter and a bulletin board at the law school to keep students up to date on available projects. The newsletter and bulletin board provide interested students with detailed information regarding upcoming projects related to their preferred areas of practice.

Please follow the Pro Bono Board on Instagram and Facebook.
