Answering the Call for Legal Aid in Dallas

The Pro Bono Partners program, a partnership betweeen the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and the Dallas Area Paralegal Association, is designed to make pro bono easier for legal professionals to give back. All DAYL members who commit, through Pro Bono Partners, to at least 12 hours of pro bono work this year. Individuals who accomplish this will be recognized as a Pro Bono Participant (12 hours), Partner (30 hours), or Pillar (50+  hours) based on the total hours completed.

How can you show your support?  The best and easiest way to show your support is to sign up here.

Scared you don’t know how to handle a case? To make it easier for you to jump in, we’re providing subject area mentors, so you’ll have someone an email or call away to help you maneuver a new area.

Fearful you’ll get too busy? For interested attorneys, we’ll pair you up with a paralegal, so you will have support when you’re busy.

Unsure of what kind of case you can take on? We’ll help you connect with great organizations around DFW that provide all kinds of opportunities- both litigation and transactional, such as the Dallas Attorney Volunteer Program (“DVAP”), Catholic Charities, Legal Hospice, Mosaic Family Services, Human Rights Initiative, and Advocates for Community Transformation.

Don’t have time right now? You can take a pro bono case when you have the time. By filling out the form, you are simply committing to taking a pro bono case sometime this year. The form helps us get you the information you need to move forward.
