Communities and Organizations

The Pro Bono Clearinghouse is a tool to connect individuals, communities, and non-profits with pro bono representation. Submitting a matter to the Clearinghouse and subsequent posting of the matter does not guarantee representation. We do not post criminal or non-viable matters.  

For communities and non-profit organizations, the Clearinghouse is open to groups that could not achieve their goal if not for the pro bono assistance. Additionally, they must have a mission to serve a public interest, including public health, conservation, preservation, addressing systemic environmental ills, etc.  

For individuals, the Clearinghouse is for low-income individuals and people disproportionately affected by environmental issues, often Black, Indigenous, and people of color. 

By submitting a matter to the Clearinghouse, you are certifying that you meet the above parameters of pro bono needs. Individual lawyers and firms may have their own definition of pro bono representation.  

Please be sure to read all the information under Submit a Matter before filling out the form.
