The South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (ProBAR) is a national effort to provide pro bono legal services to asylum seekers detained in South Texas by the United States government. The project recruits, trains and coordinates the activities of volunteer attorneys, law students and legal assistants. ProBAR is a joint project of the American Bar Association, the State Bar of Texas and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. The Texas Access to Justice Foundation provides support to this project.

In 2015, the State Bar of Texas honored ProBAR with its “Pro Bono Award” in recognition of outstanding contributions to the provision of legal assistance to low-income Texans.
ProBAR is currently looking to fill several positions. For these and other career opportunities at the American Bar Association, please visit the ABA Career Center. All ProBAR positions are available in Harlingen, Texas.
