Rutgers Pro Bono Recognition Program

Students who participate in a minimum of 35 hours of pro bono work during their Law School careers receive special recognition at graduation, as well as a transcript notation. Pro bono credit is awarded for work that is truly volunteer (neither compensated nor undertaken for academic credit), and law-based. Many students volunteer with one of the school-based pro bono initiatives, while others work for outside public interest law organizations or government agencies.

Current students may log their pro bono hours in Symplicity.

For questions about any of the various pro bono opportunities, or for more information about identifying additional placements, please email publicinterest@kinoy.rutgers.edu.
