Illinois Pro Bono Research Alliance - Student Sign-up

The Illinois Pro Bono Research Alliance provides an opportunity for law students and attorneys to collaborate while providing legal assistance to someone in need.

If you are a lawyer interested in being matched with a law student for research assistance on a pro bono project, click here.

This program matches interested 2Ls, 3Ls, 4Ls, and LLM law students with pro bono attorneys who need assistance on a research assignment, from those taking only a few hours, to larger projects. Law students will work directly with the pro bono attorney. Our hope is that the program will be a useful resource that encourages more attorneys to engage in pro bono work, while simultaneously providing law students with valuable experience, hours that can be counted towards a pro bono hour requirement, and an opportunity to build their professional network.
