Legal Volunteers

Interested in giving back to your community?

Interested in pro bono legal work?  The Community Justice Program (CJP) has volunteer opportunities for lawyers, paralegals, notaries and law students at each of our pro bono community clinics.

Attorneys licensed in Texas (as well as inactive Texas attorneys, retired attorneys and attorneys licensed out-of-state who have qualified through the NOVA program) can serve as a volunteer attorney providing direct pro bono services or as attorney mentor to volunteer attorneys who have taken cases outside of their practice area.

Paralegals, notaries and law students assist our volunteer attorneys with providing legal advice and representation on a variety of civil legal topics.

Please reach out to us at volunteer@sabar.org for more information about volunteering at one of our 2019 Clinics. 

Earn a Care Commitment badge for your State Bar of Texas profile

Did you know lawyers who perform 5, 10 or 15 hours of pro bono can now earn the Care Commitment badge which will appear by their name on the State Bar of Texas website on the popular "Find a Lawyer" page? The SBOT encourages all attorneys to perform a base level of pro bono and inspires them to strive toward the State Bar's aspirational goal of performing at least 50 hours of legal services for the poor each year.
