Pro Bono Program

The legal profession is one of service. Students who participate in the Washburn Law Pro Bono Program are able to demonstrate to employers a commitment to serving the community and an enhanced practical legal experience. While lawyers must make a living, they must also use their unique legal skill set to better the communities in which they live. Attorneys achieve this by providing pro bono – or volunteer – legal assistance. Washburn Law students who participate in pro bono projects learn the value of this service and personal benefits that come from helping others. Pro bono work is a wonderful combination of gaining legal experience, interacting with legal professions, and serving the community.
