Partnering With Law Students to Serve the Community
March 27, 2012
The seeds of good pro bono work can be planted early. This is the premise that our law firm affirmed when we created two pro bono partnerships with the University of Pennsylvania Law School. These partnerships pair law students and lawyers in an effort to assist indigent clients who cannot afford to represent themselves. The programs have proven successful, creating an innovative approach to the expansion of legal services while at the same time teaching law students important real-world legal skills that will prepare them to be effective counselors and advocates.
