The Volunteer Lawyers Project increases access to justice by delivering high quality pro bono civil legal services to under-represented clients in the Greater Boston Area. In a few hours you can make a positive impact on the lives of low income clients for years to come. Join other VLP volunteers at our pro bono clinics or sign-up to take on a case!

In 2002, Hon. Edward M. Ginsburg, a retired Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court, established an innovative new pro bono project: Senior Partners for Justice. Now in its 16th year, Senior Partners for Justice has significantly increased access to justice for under-represented clients in Greater Boston and attracted nearly 1000 volunteers including retired judges, experienced attorneys, and new lawyers. Volunteers also benefit from the chance to mentor or be mentored by fellow attorneys.
On Thursday, October 18, the SJC Standing Committe on Pro Bono Legal Services will be awarding those who have completed the required amount of pro bono hours in 2017 with a Pro Bono Honor Roll certificate. The award recognizes attorneys, organizations, firms, law schools, and law students that demonstrate exceptional commitment to volunteer legal services for those in need.
Congratulations to this year's 2018 Adams Pro Bono Publico Recipients!
