Volunteer Opportunities

PBRC connects lawyers to meaningful pro bono opportunities based on their substantive interests and geographical preferences. Lawyers can volunteer in many ways across Maryland – from direct representation and giving brief advice at legal clinics to answering calls on a hotline, serving as a volunteer mediator, or assisting with research and writing projects.
