Law Students Available for Pro Bono Support During COVID-19 Pandemic

Communities across the United States are experiencing significant impacts of the spread of COVID-19. One of these impacts is an increase in unique, urgent legal needs. Attorneys across the country are working nearly non-stop to ensure that those impacted by COVID-19 have access to appropriate legal services. 

In support of these efforts, over 300 law students, paralegals, and student paralegals have offered to provide remote pro bono support for COVID-related matters. These students stand ready to provide research, drafting, and other support to attorneys. Examples of projects students may assist on include 

  • research regarding paid leave policies 
  • drafting for bail motions 
  • supporting efforts to seek release from immigration custody

If attorneys are interested in receiving student support on their COVID-19 related matters, they should fill out this form
