Pro Bono Service Program

All Chase students complete 50 hours of pro bono service prior to graduation.  Pro bono service is defined as law-related work performed in public interest organizations; in the public sector; or with private practitioners or law firms where the work is performed at no cost or at a reduced fee on behalf of underrepresented clients.  Students select from approved placement organizations, participate in a law school based pro bono project, or design their own pro bono projects. Students perform a broad range of law-related work, including:

  • community legal education,
  • client intake, 
  • case preparation, 
  • research and writing, and 
  • legislative or policy analysis.

Whether you are a current or prospective Chase student or an organization interested in serving as a placement site or "pro bono partner," we encourage you to explore our website to learn more about this exciting program.

Please note: The Chase Pro Bono Service Program does not provide direct legal services. If you are in need of legal assistance, you may obtain referral information by contacting the Cincinnati Bar Association or the Northern Kentucky Bar Association.
