Pro-Bono Opportunities at DRNC

DRNC is looking for pro bono attorneys. We have opportunities that range from bite-size opportunities of a few hours (such as intake assistance) from the comfort of your own office, to legal research, and work on complex litigation. Our robust opportunities come in a variety of time commitments, complexities, and topic areas. No matter which opportunity you select, you will be making an invaluable impact in the life of a person with a disability.

If you decide to volunteer, be assured that we provide support throughout the duration of your work with us. We offer Continuing Legal Education (CLE) trainings, written materials, shadowing opportunities with our own staff attorneys, and a primary contact person to work with you throughout the pro bono opportunity. You will have our full support and guidance to ensure a meaningful and successful pro bono experience.
