Pro Bono Program
The University of Oregon School of Law’s Pro Bono Program is a dynamic, award-winning program that gets results for underserved populations. A nine-time winner of the Oregon State Bar Pro Bono Challenge, (2001-2009), students represent underserved individuals and causes from housing and benefits to complicated federal civil rights matters. Though working without pay or academic credit, students gain legal skills, handle actual legal issues and work directly with clients, under attorney supervision.
To further the law school's commitment to pro bono service, the Pro Bono Executive Board works to raise the level of student involvement, and create or support more "in-house" opportunities, such as VITA, Street Law and others.
