Location of Program

A full definition of the term "Location of Program" as it is used in this Law School Public Interest and Pro Bono directory

Definition

For schools with formal pro bono programs, the location of the program may be one of the most defining characteristics of the program. The location may be determined by the vision for the program, by the location of the pro bono coordinator, or by other practicalities such as space and resources.

There are six locations within a law school where one might "find" a pro bono program. Four of these locations are outside the administrative offices of the law school and, collectively, represent the majority of pro bono programs. These programs may exist:

  1. As a "Stand-Alone" Program (not in any office/center). These programs are not part of any other office and maintain a separate identity. Some are mandatory programs; some are not. Some have full-time staffing; others have minimal staffing.
  2. Within a Public Interest Office/ Center. The director of the center may or may not also serve as the pro bono coordinator.
  3. With the Clinical or Externship Program. This arrangement most often exists because of the unique interest of the faculty in these programs. This arrangement is less popular, in part, because of the already high time demands on clinical faculty.
  4. With Faculty. Faculty members play a significant role in the operation of these programs. Each program is very different.

Law school pro bono programs located outside of the school's administrative offices often have a curricular feel about them. Sometimes this is true because a faculty person is in charge of the program; other times this is true because the program is part of a larger effort to provide an array of public interest programming or to incorporate public service pervasively throughout the curriculum. Often these pro bono programs have an identity separate from any other program in the school, even if within a larger public interest or service center.

The administrative offices where one might find a pro bono program are the Office of Career Services ("OCS") and the Office of Students Services/Affairs. OCS is the single most popular location for a pro bono program.

  1. Within the Office of Career Services. Some schools have chosen this location in order to emphasize the importance of pro bono as a professional value to be carried into one's career. For others, it is a matter of practicality. Some of these schools have a separate pro bono/public interest counselor in the Office of Career Services. In a few cases, this function is delegated to students, who may or may not be paid.
  2. Within the Office of Student Affairs/Services.

Regardless of the location of a law school pro bono program, the structure, staffing and operation of these programs differ greatly. No location by itself defines how a program looks or operates. Mandatory programs, for example, exist in each of the six identified locations. No location guarantees success; successful pro bono projects exist in each of the locations.
