Pro Bono Opportunities
Legal Aid Programs in Missouri
The support of the private bar is vital to the delivery of legal services to our low-income clients in Missouri. Without your support many client needs will go unmet, potentially resulting in denials of justice that could have tragic repercussions for families in our community.
Volunteering with the local legal aid program in your area save homes, assist the elderly and disabled, prevent homelessness, protect those who have been abused, and prevent the destruction of families. Your donation of time can literally help us change lives.
Please contact the local legal aid program in your area and assist us in this effort. You will find the experience vastly rewarding!
The Missouri Bar
The Missouri Bar encourages all Missouri attorneys to find opportunities and resources to provide pro bono service to needy persons and groups, particularly those whose incomes do not allow them to obtain necessary representation.
