Doing Pro Bono at Penn
The law school offers students a tremendous array of opportunities to hone their legal skills while exploring issues they care about and helping members of the community.
For Penn Law students, pro bono opportunities are limitless. Students can participate in more than 30 pro bono projects (internal opportunities) or partner with non-profit or government agencies for pro bono internships (external opportunities). Students may also earn pro bono hours through clinics and externships if they do a formal credit exchange.
Taking a proactive and strategic approach to pro bono can offer students valuable opportunities to develop practical lawyering skills, to explore different areas of law, and to serve underrepresented causes and communities. The Skills and Inventory page will allow you select pro bono opportunities through the lens of skills exploration.
