Volunteer Resources

Allegheny County Bar Foundation’s Pro Bono Center

The center links the bar association members and the 17 projects and member organizations that provide direct legal services to the poor. The center’s mission is to provide well-trained attorney volunteers to help meet the legal needs of the indigent in Allegheny County. Volunteer attorneys will have access to the support they need, including free or reduced fee CLE training, free online research, mentoring, and malpractice insurance for volunteer efforts, as well as volunteer opportunities through the center’s projects, organizations and new initiatives.

For more information, please contact Barbara Griffin at the Foundation at (412) 402-6677 or bgriffin@acba.org.
