Formal Voluntary Pro Bono Program Characterized by a Referral System with a Coordinator 

Description of Programs

The University of Richmond School of Law created the Harry L. Carrico Center for Pro Bono & Public Service in recognition of an attorney’s professional obligation to serve the community, as well as a law school’s responsibility to educate its students on the need for pro bono legal services. The center connects the skills and talents of its student body with the greater Richmond community and a network of regional and national programs.

Location of Programs

The Carrico Center for Pro Bono & Public Service is a standalone program. 


The Carrico Center for Pro Bono & Public Service is administered by a faculty director who is also responsible for teaching and directing the law school's post-graduate fellowship program.  


The program is funded from the law school's operating budget.  

Faculty and Administrative Pro Bono



The law school recognizes those students who have completed 120 hours or more of pro bono service during their three years of law school with the Carrico Center Pro Bono Certificate. Additionally, the law school recognizes 1-3 graduating law students who have made an extraordinary commitment to public interest work with the Pro Bono Award.

Alternative Winter or Spring Break Projects

During Spring Break, law students have historically volunteered with the Ronald McDonald House to support families staying there.
