Employment Law Pro Bono Project Opportunity

The Boston Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Section is pleased to invite you to participate in a significant new pro bono employment law project. We are partnering with the Lawyers Clearinghouse to provide important employment law counseling assistance to underserved/under-funded non-profit social service organizations while creating more pro bono opportunities for employment law attorneys. While many pro bono efforts target litigators to take on pro bono cases in indigent client matters, limited opportunities exist for employment lawyers who want to provide pro bono legal assistance in their areas of expertise, or for management attorneys unable to take on plaintiff-side cases. And, while the metropolitan Boston area is filled with non-profit organizations, many of them have limited resources, and are in need of legal assistance in various areas of employment law compliance, such as wage and hour law, wage payment law, personnel policy development or ADA awareness.

This partnership addresses the glaring need of non-profits for such services and the lack of pro bono opportunities for employment lawyers by matching employment lawyers with non-profit organizations in need of assistance with employment-related legal needs. This partnership presents a special opportunity for BBA labor and employment section members to lend their talents to these important non-profit organizations.

If you are interested in volunteering your time, please email kdangelo@bostonbar.org with a brief summary of your background/experience. Please note that we are looking for volunteer lawyers with a minimum of four years of experience in labor and employment law.
