If you have an hour or so a month and would like a change from studying, we have the perfect pro project for you! The Richland County Bar Association staffs a Homeless Legal Clinic twice a month at Transitions. As part of the HELP Clinic an intake form is completed ( often by a volunteer law student) At the conclusion of the Clinic the forms are scanned and sent to the Pro Pro Bono Program
Where do you come in? We need to enter the information on those forms into a data base. This helps the HELP Committee figure out what are the trends and emerging issues facing the homeless population.
Once you volunteer the Pro Bono Program can give you access to the office so you can drop in anytime to enter data. The hardest part of this job-reading the handwriting of the lawyers!
To volunteer send a message to Pamela Robinson Robinspd@law.sc.edu
The ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono has declared Oct. 21-27 Celebrate Pro Bono Week! It is a time that across the nation, Bar Associations, law firms and law schools will be focussing on what we do best- pro bono work!
