Welcome to the future home of the ELI Pro Bono Platform!
FOR ATTORNEYS: We help you find new pro bono opportunities to tackle environmental challenges. Whether it’s helping a local community form a new organization to deal with environmental problems, arguing in front of the local zoning board, or filing impact litigation, this clearinghouse offers numerous ways to engage in subject-matter relevant environmental pro bono to support communities in need.
FOR ENVIRONMENTAL LAW CLINICS: We post the matters you have already vetted but cannot take on due to limited resources or, alternatively, we help you find pro bono lawyers who can expand your team’s capacity to work on pro bono matters. When you have matters, simply email us at email@example.com and we will share that with our members to contact you or the party directly with their interest and availability to take on those matters.
FOR COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS: We plan to offer a simple way for you to tell us what environmental matters you need pro bono legal support for and we help to connect you with attorneys who can provide those legal services, but for now, we will only connect our members with matters that have first come through an Environmental Law Clinic. So, if you have an environmental matter, we encourage you to first find a clinic near you and connect with them first.
INTERESTED IN PARTNERING WITH ELI ON THIS PROJECT? We are in the process of building out our webpage to provide significant functionality. In the meantime, please send your name, contact information, and interest in our pro bono platform to our team here, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ELI does not assess the efficacy or specifics of the legal matters that may be listed and does not engage in the legal work at any point; ELI is simply a clearinghouse for our members to find potential pro bono environmental matters.
