Boston Bar Association seeking students for pro bono committee

The Boston Bar Association is seeking three Harvard Law students to join a pro bono committee – a small, select group of public-service-oriented students from the local law schools to join a community of students who will form relationships with one another and will learn about some of the great opportunities available for public service and pro bono work in the area.

More specifically, students will be learning (through volunteer events and panel discussions at local law schools) about  opportunities available to do public service work, and will be building an inter-school community of students passionate about bettering their communities.
 
Mission Statement:
To encourage the collaboration of Boston area law students, attorneys, and other legal professionals who are dedicated to pro bono work so as to identify, organize, and implement meaningful pro bono projects, conversations, and opportunities.

Application Deadline: August 22.  If interested, please submit a resume and an email explaining your interest to Lee Branson at  lbranson at law.harvard.edu in the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs.
