Through the Peer Consulting Project, the Center for Pro Bono makes available the expertise of experienced volunteer consultants. Center staff and these volunteers provide telephone and on-site consulting to pro bono programs, state planning groups, in-house corporate legal departments, government attorney offices, judges, minority bar associations and law schools regarding pro bono initiatives. A central part of the Project's focus is linking pro bono programs with new partners that can provide additional resources for expanding pro bono efforts.
Technical assistance is available on the topics of program operations (i.e., recruiting, training, fundraising, use of technology, advice and referral), as well as planning efforts (i.e., priority-setting, collaboration with other community providers) and identifying new resources for meeting unmet legal needs.
For more information about the Project or to arrange for a consultation request, please email Cheryl Zalenski. One of our staff attorneys will promptly return your call to discuss your particular needs and interests.
