Pro Bono Opportunities

Volunteer lawyers help Legal Aid Services of Oregon meet the needs of low-income Oregonians by working with legal aid offices around the state. Legal aid offices throughout the state offer pro bono opportunities for private attorneys to provide pro bono representation. Opportunities vary depending on the regional office. Pro bono attorneys provide an extremely valuable service by increasing access to legal assistance to many low-income Oregonians each year.
