National Pro Bono Celebration


In observance of the American Bar Association’s National Pro Bono Celebration week, The Pro Bono Project will be in the lobby of the 24th Judicial District Courthouse from October 24 – 27, 2016 from 10 am to 2 pm. During these hours, we will distribute information about our services and volunteer opportunities.

We'll also have our regularly scheduled programming, which includes operating the 24th JDC Family Law Self Help Desk. The Self Help Desk assists self-represented litigants by giving legal information and assistance with completing forms for family law matters such as divorce and custody cases. The Self Help Desk will be open the following hours during Pro Bono Week:

  • 10 to noon, Tuesday, October 25 and Thursday, October 27

Please visit us during this week for more information about volunteering with the Pro Bono Project and the Self Help Desk.

To volunteer to man the 24th JDC Self Help Desk, you can email Kathleen Legendre or sign up at Signup.com (formerly VolunteerSpot).
