Supporting Mobile Pro Bono Attorneys

Changing trends in the nature of pro bono work, user expectations, and adoption of mobile devices are driving the need to rethink what types of recruitment tools and substantive resources are most effective for volunteers. At the same time, technology is allowing legal aid programs to provide more comprehensive support to volunteer attorneys in “on the go” settings such as clinics, outreach settings, and in court.  In 2017, several new LSC-funded initiatives will launch in response to these trends and opportunities. Panelists will highlight new, mobile-first volunteer engagement tools, online settlement checklists, practice toolkits and other technologies that make it easier for volunteers to take on or increase their pro bono work. We will share feedback from volunteers that informed the development of these tools and opportunities for replication. Proposed panelists include representatives from legal aid programs in Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York and/or Georgia that have undertaken these initiatives

Panelists: 

  • Barbara Siegel, Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association 
  • Jenny Singleton, Legal Services State Support - ?Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid
