Law Student Pro Bono Project

USF law students have many opportunities to participate in public interest projects.

All law students are encouraged to contribute to the local legal community through the Law Student Pro Bono Project co-sponsored by USF School of Law and OneJustice.

The Law Student Pro Bono Project matches students with short-term and long-term volunteer projects at legal aid agencies, court-based programs, and social service providers. Students may sign up to receive the Pro Bono News of the Week and learn about projects on the Law Student Pro Bono Project website. Flexible and varied opportunities provide students with options that fit their busy schedules.

Student projects include:

  1. Certified court practice
  2. Client intake and interviewing
  3. Fact investigation
  4. Legal research and writing
  5. Legislative advocacy
  6. Policy analysis
  7. Translation
  8. Trial preparation

Students interested in pursuing public interest and public sector legal careers upon graduation can demonstrate their commitment to public service by obtaining a Public Interest Law Certificate. The Law Student Pro Bono Project is sponsored jointly by USF and OneJustice.
