Pro Bono Program - Duquesne University School of Law
The Duquesne University School of Law's Pro Bono Program solicits projects from private attorneys providing pro bono services as well as legal services organizations and non-profits. Private attorneys, who are providing pro bono legal services to a client, can contact the Pro Bono Program with specific assignments for Duquesne law students.
The Pro Bono Program will then advertise these projects and make every effort to find a match for submitted projects. Examples of types of projects include: research, writing, client in-take, litigation preparation, investigation, and advocacy.
