The ABA Military Pro Bono Project

For Servicemembers, Veterans and their Families

The American Bar Association's Military Pro Bono Project does not directly serve members of our warrior community. However the ABA's Home Front page links to helpful information, such as a State-by-State directory of Programs and a Military Family Information Center linking to legal information of special interest to military families.

For Lawyers

The ABA Military Pro Bono Project offers attorneys two different ways to help military families:

  • Attorneys can register to be contacted by the ABA Military Pro Bono Project with opportunities to provide pro bono assistance on behalf of military families when cases arise in your geographic and substantive area. Sign up for our weekly Case Opportunities listserv to stay up-to-date on the latest pro bono opportunities through the Project. Learn more.
  • Attorneys can register to join the Consultation Center to volunteer time to receive calls or emails from military attorneys in need of attorney-to-attorney advice on state-specific legal information relating to your legal area of expertise, so they can better assist their servicemember clients.
Military Attorneys are encouraged to register as above, so they may be able to refer their clinets to the project and/or take advantage of the Consultation Center.
