Celebrate National Pro Bono Week

The last week of October is National Pro Bono Week. This week shines a spotlight on pro bono work with special events for volunteer attorneys and the population they serve.

Wisconsin is fortunate to have many free or low cost legal assistance organizations. We list several of these by county on our website. If you are an individual looking for help, check our directory for an organization near you and ask local organizations if there are any special legal clinics this week.

Our county directory might also be useful for attorneys looking for opportunities to volunteer. Also, follow the Wisconsin Access to Justice Commission online; the Commission was created to support civil legal services for low income Wisconsin residents.

Are you an attorney looking for a new opportunity to volunteer? The Commission recently launched a new legal advice website, Wisconsin Legal Advice Online, and they are looking for attorneys to volunteer their time (which WisBar's InsideTrack appealingly calls, Pro Bono in Your Pajamas.)

This is the week to volunteer - or recognize those who are already volunteering. Learn how to nominate yourself or someone else for the Pro Bono Honor Society.
