Indiana's Pro Bono Opportunity Guide Available
Indiana Legal Help has developed the Pro Bono Opportunity Guide. The guide is a new volunteer matching tool for legal professionals and legal assistance providers. The guide invites legal assistance organizations from around the state to post volunteer opportunities on one central website. Now, legal professionals can easily search for opportunities across multiple organizations that match their time, location, and skill set. Please join Indiana Legal Help in celebrating and sharing this new statewide resource.
