Your MSBA membership helps support education and training for legal professionals to engage in public interest work. Join PBRC in upcoming pro bono opportunities.
Applications are now open for the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland’s 2022-2023 Professional Skills Academy! PBRC’s Professional Skills Academy is a one-year, cohort-based program of training, mentoring, and service for newer attorneys. Fellows who join will:
- Gain training and practical mentorship to enhance the Fellows’ lawyering skills.
- Build skills in fact-gathering, negotiation, in-court representation, counseling, and document drafting.
- Build an intentional pro bono plan and gain experience offering free legal services in court and at community clinics
- Be introduced to like-minded colleagues who they will make lasting connections with.
Academy Fellows will learn from experienced attorneys while defending low-wage workers against fraud, preventing unlawful evictions in rent court, counseling at-risk immigrants, and preserving intergenerational wealth for low-income families. Fellows will receive topical training to prepare them for their pro bono service, as well as general litigation skills training.
Interested attorneys are encouraged to apply to the Academy by Monday, August 15th. To apply, please visit: https://probonomd.org/academy/.
