Whether you choose the Rhode Island Bar Association's Volunteer Lawyer Program, Pro Bono Program for the Elderly or US Armed Forces Legal Services Project you are supporting your community and the RI Bar Association's pro bono efforts. Here are some important reasons to do so:


* Clients are pre-screened by the Public Services Staff.


* You will know you are helping someone who truly needs your  assistance.


* You can earn free CLE .


* You can volunteer in your own field and do not have to leave your office, unless it is a court matter, to help someone.


* Bar Headquarters is available upon request for meeting with pro bono program clients.


* Your Rhode Island Bar Association programs offer a variety of opportunities in a range of practice areas, forums and levels of time commitment.


* You determine when to accept a case and see the client.


* Your efforts are recorded, appreciated and recognized by the Rhode Island Bar Association, your peers and the judiciary. 


Thank you to all of you who continue to support the Bar’s pro bono programs! Without you, many marginalized Rhode Islanders would most likely go unrepresented. For further information on joining a pro bono program please contact Susan Fontaine via email or at 401-421-7758.
