How We Help
PBRC connects lawyers and others 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. Other advocates can interpret for lawyers and clients, volunteer at clinics, do intakes, and assist volunteer lawyers with direct representation.
