Forging the Path to Pro BonoPrint
Pro Bono Students Canada and Pro Bono Canada (an umbrella organization made up of five pro bono charity houses in Canada) are excited to present The Path to Law Firm Pro Bono, a guide created specifically for law students to asses a prospective employer’s commitment to pro bono service.
We believe that pro bono work is a key component of any comprehensive access to justice plan, and law students across Canada are proudly displaying their commitment to their communities. Law firms have taken notice and many are now actively engaging in pro bono for a variety of reasons. Use this guide to help you gain a deeper understanding of prospective employer’s pro bono programs, policies and passion through tips and evaluation tools that you can apply before, during and after the interview process.
The Path to Law Firm Pro Bono was created through consultation with several career development professionals in Canada’s law schools, and with the assistance of the following law students: Eric Hou (Allard School of Law, University of British Columbia), Michael O’Grady and Raeya Jackiw (University of Toronto, Faculty of Law).
