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.
Student Pro Bono Projects
View Student Projects
Student projects form the core of Penn Law’s pro bono experience by offering unique leadership and practical opportunities while helping under-served populations.
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 Inventory page will allow you select pro bono opportunities through the lens of skills exploration.
Pro Bono Service for LLM Students
As integral parts of the LLM program, public service and pro bono provide students with important opportunities to develop their professional skills while learning more about the communities that exist beyond the walls of the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School.
Though not a graduation requirement, LLMs are welcome and encouraged to take part in Law School approved pro bono work.
