Slide Slide 58.2% of lawyers pie chart who provided pro bono legal services as law students said doing so made them “more” or “far more” likely to provide pro bono services after graduating. "Engagement in pro bono - ABA Center for Pro Bono as a law student may lead to increased pro bono services provided after graduation."

The next Florida Pro Bono Law School Challenge will run February 1 - March 26, 2021. The platform goes live at 9 a.m. on February 1.

For the third year in a row, all 12 of Florida's law schools are competing to see which can take the most cases. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, many legal aid programs are operating remotely and offering virtual pro bono opportunities. We encourage students and lawyers to work on their cases virtually and to follow the CDC’s guidelines, which include wearing a mask and social distancing, if they must meet in person. Trophies will be awarded at the Annual Florida Bar Convention in June.
