The purpose of the Pro Bono Committee is to assess the needs in the community and to coordinate pro bono trainings and programs for members. The current programs that the Committee oversees are listed here.
Domestic Violence Project
The Domestic Violence Project provides training one or two times a year for attorney volunteers who wish to participate in legal clinics which take place at Orange County domestic violence shelters in Santa Ana and Ladera Ranch in the evenings.
Attorney volunteers are trained to participate in legal clinics held at the Lamoreaux Justice Center every Monday afternoon from 12:30 to 4:30 (excluding court holidays). This legal clinic assists relatives through the legal process to gain guardianship of the child. The project also involves accepting cases from the Public Law Center.
A basic training is provided for attorneys who want to volunteer at legal clinics held at the Orange County Bankruptcy Court. These clinics help low-income pro se debtors understand their rights regarding reaffirmation agreements and Chapter 7 filings.
