The Eric Neisser Public Interest Program is home to a number of student-run pro bono and community service projects. Students volunteering through these programs, or through an outside pro bono placement, provide assistance, advocacy and education in a wide variety of areas, including domestic violence, immigration, the environment, criminal justice, housing, human rights, work with youth, and veterans’ issues. The work of Rutgers law students, through the assistance of the Neisser Program, makes for meaningful contributions to the Newark community and beyond.
Current student pro bono projects include:
The Student Pro Bono Board (SPBB) assists in identifying and promoting pro bono work throughout the law school community, and strives to provide regular recognition of the efforts of students, faculty and staff.
