Description of Programs

Barry University School of Law commits itself to offering students a quality education in a caring environment that encourages community service and assures a religious dimension. The Rules of Professional Conduct recognize that every lawyer has a professional responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay. To foster the mission of the University and the aspirations of our profession, the School of Law has adopted a "pro bono requirement" that each student perform a minimum number of hours [40 hours] of pro bono or community service work prior to graduation.

The pro bono requirement can be satisfied by any of the following activities, if undertaken without compensation or academic credit: volunteering at a non-profit charitable organization (either law- or non-law related); providing legal assistance on a pro bono case under the supervision of an attorney; and serving people who are disadvantaged through a public agency or private organization.

Location of Programs

The Career Services Office provides information regarding various community service opportunities. After completing the 40 hour pro bono requirement, students are required to submit a description of their activities to the Registrar.
