Pro Bono Spring Break

Law schools, law firms, and public interest organizations have made tremendous progress in their efforts to inculcate the value of service and involve law students in providing meaningful pro bono. During the spring break season, a wide array of schools offered their versions of “alternative spring breaks,” during which students spent their vacation time offering pro bono work. Earlier this year on the Law Firm Project’s Podcast, the Pro Bono Happy Hour, we the discussed Columbia Law School’s alternative spring break with Laren Spirer. Their Spring Break Pro Bono Caravans, with support from Dentons*and others, enables law students to work with legal services and public interest organizations nationally and abroad, from Alaska to California to Texas to Jordan and South Africa and places in between, on a range of legal issues, such as immigration, criminal justice, domestic violence, water rights, and reproduction rights. In addition to Columbia Law School’s program, a variety of law schools across the country offer similar programs: Boston University School of Law, Fordham University School of Law, Harvard Law School, Rutgers Law School, Stanford Law School, Texas A&M University School of Law, University of California, Irvine School of Law, University of Colorado Law SchoolUniversity of Chicago Law School, and more.

These intensive, pro bono experiences can be life changing for the clients, host organizations, and next generation of lawyers.
