Pro bono

If you are a client seeking no cost civil legal services, please apply for LSA services HERE, or connect with your local Volunteer Attorney Program (VLP).  Which VLP program you contact depends on where you live in the state.  

Pro Bono for Attorneys and Law Students

With your participation, Legal Services Alabama and our partners throughout the state are able to increase access to justice for Alabamians that live at or below the poverty level.  Through a network of Volunteer Lawyer Programs, the new Alabama Free Legal Answers and LSA’s private attorney involvement activities, there are multiple opportunities to volunteer your time and expertise. The civil legal needs of our clients typically cover multiple practice areas, most notably consumer protection, housing preservation and foreclosure defense, and domestic violence response and prevention.

Please note: LSA’s Partners for Justice Program is designed to complement existing staff services and specific legal areas of need. This means that program attorneys are selected based on areas of practice, location, and the needs of the local office. Attorneys who practice in rural counties are encouraged to apply.
