PILI’s Pro Bono Mentorship Program is a collaboration between the Public Interest Law Initiative, its Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees, and legal service providers across the state. Through PILI’s Pro Bono Mentorship Program, volunteer attorneys who lack experience in a particular area of law are paired with a more experienced attorney for advice and counsel to ensure competent representation of pro bono clients. A mentor or mentee will choose to provide advice, limited scope and discrete services, or full representation. The purpose of this program is to increase the number of clients who receive pro bono assistance while simultaneously offering a unique and invaluable learning opportunity for attorneys.
When one signs up as a mentor or mentee, the legal service provider matches them with a pro bono matter in the area of law they are interested in or experienced. Please review the Pro Bono Mentorship Program Policy Guide here.
