Pro bono and public interest law are core to Nebraska Law’s mission of advancing justice. Our culture of pro bono service means there are a variety of opportunities that allow students to make an impact before finishing law school.
Pro Bono Initiative
Along with the privileges of being a lawyer come responsibilities, one of which includes a lawyer’s pro bono obligation to provide legal services and access to justice to those in need. Nebraska Law students are encouraged to participate in impactful local and national pro bono projects while in law school.
“It’s a great feeling to know that you’re making someone’s life just a little bit easier through your legal services and advocacy. And you’re directly serving your community as well.”
Nebraska Law is recognized as a leader in public interest law. Students interested in public interest work will find support, including financial assistance and a community of like-minded peers.
