Careers: Law Students: Pro Bono
In 2001, Brown Rudnick forged a new vehicle to advance our pro bono efforts. The Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest is an innovative model combining the Firm’s pro bono, charitable giving and community volunteer efforts. Through our Center, we champion, coordinate and celebrate our public interest work.
We understand the power of pro bono. Through the Center, our zealous advocacy has helped: a disabled veteran break through bureaucracy to secure the health and rehabilitation benefits to which he is entitled; immigrants to overcome deportation challenges or to reconnect with their families; struggling artists who weren’t getting paid promised fees for their work.
Our sophisticated corporate expertise has guided many fledgling nonprofit organizations from start-up to success. Our highly developed teamwork has staffed dozens of legal clinics advising the homeless, helped scores of out-of-work people in hard times to obtain their unemployment benefits, and assisted dozens of people staggering under crushing debt to secure the protection of personal bankruptcy. We have gone to shelters and soup kitchens, administrative agencies and commissions, small claims court and the US Supreme Court on behalf of our pro bono clients.
We deeply appreciate how this work contributes to a healthy legal system; how it can help to transform a client’s life or launch a useful nonprofit organization; how it can provide both personal and professional fulfillment to the Brown Rudnick attorneys and paralegals involved.
At Brown Rudnick, we understand the power of pro bono.
