Military Pro Bono Project Cases
As of 10/26/2015
The ABA Military Pro Bono Project, a web-based program on www.MilitaryProBono.org, accepts case referrals from military legal assistance attorneys (JAGs) anywhere in the world on behalf of junior-enlisted servicemembers with civil legal issues requiring services beyond what JAGs can provide. The Project then places these cases with attorneys who offer to provide pro bono help where the legal assistance is needed in the United States. The Project also includes Operation Stand-By, through which civilian attorneys may volunteer to offer lawyer-to-lawyer consultations to JAGs in need of guidance so they can further help their servicemember clients.
Attorneys may register on www.MilitaryProBono.org to get involved with the following:
- Pro Bono Legal Assistance: Attorneys interested in providing pro bono legal help to military members may register to receive email notices of case opportunities from the Project when cases arise in the attorneys' geographic areas and substantive legal areas of experise.
- Operation Stand-By: Attorneys joining Operation Stand-By may periodically receive short calls from military attorneys in need of consultation on substantive or jurisdiction-specific information relating to the attorneys' areas of expertise.
