Learn more about how to get involved as a volunteer attorney

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! The Project's greatest need is for attorneys who can represent a prisoner in his or her state post-conviction proceedings. Because of the time-intensive nature of these cases, volunteers must have a team and adequate resources for experts, investigation, and travel. As a result, most of our volunteers come from mid to large-size civil law firms.

For attorneys at smaller firms or solo practitioners, please visit our Solo and Small Firms page.

Before going forward, interested attorneys should review the documents on this page, including the Frequently Asked Questions and Next Steps. You can also contact the Project by email.
