Pro Bono Research and Writing Project Information Session (CU Boulder)

The Pro Bono Research and Writing Project seeks to matching law students with Colorado Legal Services attorneys who can benefit from students’ legal research and writing skills. CLS is the primary provider of civil legal aid in Colorado, but has just 47 lawyers to serve an income-eligible population of more than 880,000 people. CLS has to turn away at least one person for every case it accepts.>br>
You can help by doing a research and writing project for a CLS attorney. You can volunteer for a specific project when it meets your interests and fits your schedule. Not only will you be providing valuable legal assistance to those who need it most, you will improve your research and writing skills and earn Public Service Pledge hours at the same time. You will probably also create a great writing sample.

Come learn more at an information session on February 26 at 2:30 in room 305. CLS attorney Sarah Lipka will be here to explain the project and help you sign up if you are interested.
