Pro Bono Service
Stetson University College of Law requires our students to perform a total of 60 hours of pro bono service during their law school careers. Thirty of those hours must be law-related service, supervised by an attorney. The remaining 30 hours may be general community service, which is classified as volunteer work.
Both pro bono and volunteer work are often referred to as Stetson's Pro Bono Program. The pro bono requirement exists because law students can help close the justice gap for individuals and organizations who desperately need legal assistance.
Currently, we provide Pro Bono services through the Veteran Clinic.
For all other requests, we suggest you contact the following:
- Bay Area Legal Services (bals.org/locations)
- Pinellas County Community Law (lawprogram.org)
- Gulf Coast Legal Services (gulfcoastlegal.org)
Students, faculty, and staff can find additional information on the Pro Bono Intranet website.
