Our Mission:

To provide an open forum for students who are interested in donating their time to those who are less fortunate.

To expose students to a side of life that some may never otherwise come into contact with, and the rewards associated with helping others who, often, cannot help themselves.

To provide opportunities, both during law school and post-graduation, for the assistance of low-income/indigent persons.

To ease the burden on the community by participating in programs for low-income/indigent persons, and encourage all students to give of themselves and their time in doing the same.

To investigate and work toward a program which will aid new attorneys employed in public interest areas in repaying student loans.

To familiarize students with their obligation to "give back" to the community as an attorney, as mandated by the pro bono requirement of the state Bar, and to encourage students to participate in pro bono programs.

To inspire students to become active participants in changing "the system" for the betterment of our fellow human beings.
