    What Does It Mean to Take The Pledge?

    All you have to do is pledge to do one hour of pro bono work from September 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021. We are even supplying you with all different ways you can do pro bono work for a whole host of different organizations with our Pro Bono CornerCheck it out now


    How Do I Fulfill My Pledge?

    It's simple! (1) share your time and talent by volunteering for an organization highlighted in the Pro Bono Corner, joining us for a Legal Services sponsored pro bono activity, or providing service to a legal educational or community organization (know your rights programs, coaching mock trial, etc.) or (2) donate the cost of one billable hour to one of our featured organizations. Once you have completed your one hour or made your donation, fill out the Pledge Completion Form, and you are done. All members who complete the Pledge will be honored at our annual CWBA Convention.

    If we each do our part, the CWBA will unitedly donate over 1,500 hours of pro bono work per year!

    If you have any questions about taking the Pro Bono Pledge or about pro bono opportunities customized just for you, feel free to contact CWBA Legal Services Co-Chairs Hannah Proff or Almira Moronne.
