Pro Bono Assistance
Notice: The pro bono assistance directory is coming soon.
You do not need an attorney to file or respond to a CCB claim, but you may choose to retain or consult one. Some lawyers, legal clinics, or organizations may be available to provide legal assistance or representation on a pro bono basis, which means you will not be charged for their services. Please check back periodically because we will be adding additional law student and pro bono resources.
Looking for help?
This directory is meant to facilitate law student participation, share pro bono legal and educational services, and serve as a resource for CCB participants to consult when considering legal assistance. If you are a CCB participant or potential participant, please feel free to consult the directory and reach out to a law clinic or organization for assistance. You should check to see if the clinic or organization you are interested in is in your state or handles matters within your state.
There may also be an organization in your state that can connect you with a lawyer providing services for free or at a reduced cost. These organizations are typically focused on providing services and resources for individuals working in the arts. The following organizations have informed the CCB that they are available to consult in CCB matters:
