RUN FOR JUSTICE VIRTUAL 5K

RUN, WALK, OR SUPPORT A TEAM OR RUNNER

PBRC helps lawyers make their communities stronger by giving back. Pro bono lawyers change lives... and you can too, by running (or walking) in our 2021 Run for Justice Virtual 5k during the month of June!

Volunteer Profile

"I would like to encourage other attorneys to try volunteering for a shift at a clinic. Many of us are busy and work significant hours, and the thought of taking on pro bono work may sound daunting. I’ve found that pro bono work can be what you make of it -- volunteering at a clinic only takes a short time, and with the ability to access clients remotely you can often do this without having to travel. "

Robert Mitchell, Esq., PBRC Volunteer

Board Profile

"I donate to PBRC each year not just because I’m a board member, but because I am able. I was taught at an early age that those of us who can, should support the good work of worthy organizations such as PBRC. And I have seen firsthand how hard PBRC’s staff works to deliver on the organization’s mission. They need the community’s financial support and I’m lucky to be able to answer that call. "

Sima G. Fried, PBRC Board President & Volunteer

Who We Are

PBRC is Maryland’s hub for pro bono (free) civil legal assistance provided by volunteers. Equal access to justice is a core value of our nation, yet hundreds of thousands of our state’s residents cannot afford the legal help they desperately need and have no legal guarantee of a lawyer. As the pro bono arm of the Maryland State Bar Association, PBRC plays a unique role as the training, support, innovation, and advocacy center for pro bono. Our statewide services include:

  • Offering a professional training and mentoring program with both substantive law and skills building sessions enabling lawyers and others to effectively serve clients
  • Consulting and connecting volunteers with legal nonprofits across Maryland
  • Hosting innovative, free legal clinics in the courthouse and community offering immediate legal assistance to low-income families in areas of critical need not yet addressed by other organizations
  • Advocating and organizing to encourage pro bono service and improve the justice system for the communities we serve

 

Together, our community of lawyers with purpose is opening the doors of justice for everyone.

PBRC engages and supports the Maryland legal community in meaningful and impactful volunteer service to ensure equal access to justice for those in need.
