Pro Bono

The ABA Health Law Section is committed to pro bono activities. The Section is responsible for the Breast Cancer Task Force, that helps train lawyers that advocate for breast cancer patients. Please see the below link for more information about this  task force. Law Students are encouraged to particpate.

If you have any questions about pro bono activities, please contact Carol Simmons, Associate Director, at carol.simmons@americanbar.org.

Children and the Law

Homelessness & Poverty

Human Rights
