Who may volunteer?
Lawyers Alliance projects are ideal for business lawyers
because they involve counsel and transactional work for mission-driven
businesses. Our volunteers are attorneys admitted, or supervised
by a senior level attorney admitted, to the New York Bar.
They generally are employed by a law firm or by a corporate
legal department with at least 20 attorneys.
What types of pro bono projects are available?
Nonprofit clients need attorneys to counsel them on a wide
range of corporate, tax, real estate, employment, intellectual
property, regulatory and other business law matters. View
a representative list of legal services
that you may be able to provide.
How do I find out about available cases?
We generally place legal work in two ways: Case Listings Newsletter and one-on-one conversations.
Listings Newsletter: We email a list of available cases
to pro bono coordinators at volunteer
institutions at least monthly. For more information, contact
your firm or corporation's pro bono coordinator or call us.
conversations: Our Pro Bono Associate is happy to
discuss available opportunities related to volunteers' programmatic
interests or areas of expertise. Contact
at (212) 219-1800 x 203.
How long will it take for me to get started?
Once we identify a suitable project, we will send
you a file for review. You generally will have one week from
file receipt to confirm that you are accepting the matter.
The project commences upon final confirmation.
