PRO BONO

The Pro Bono Committee serves the disadvantaged, underrepresented, and Hispanic community by providing pro bono legal services to those who face barriers to justice, developing and implementing policy initiatives that enhance access to justice, and building partnerships with groups that share our mission.  The Committee also serves CHBA members by providing ways for members to fulfill their pro bono responsibility, offering professional development and networking opportunities, and hosting CLEs and appreciation events.
