Though Children’s Law Center is one of the largest nonprofit legal providers in DC, many more children come to us than we can help.

We are honored to partner with more than 500 pro bono lawyers every year from the area’s top law firms, in-house legal departments and government agencies to help fill the gap – but we always need more pro bono volunteers.

Even if you are new to pro bono service, our mentoring, training and materials will prepare you to navigate new areas of law. And we’ll give you the tools and support to approach every case with cultural humility, keeping the client at the center of your work and pairing your legal expertise with clients’ expertise of their lived experiences. Not only will you gain valuable skills – you’ll make a difference in the lives of DC’s children and families.
