MBA Pro Bono Prescription

The Massachusetts Bar Association and the Medical-Legal Partnership Massachusetts network have joined forces to create MBA Pro Bono Prescription. This pioneering initiative brings together volunteer attorneys and medical professionals to promote the health and well-being of low-income patients through legal advocacy. Pro bono contributions can vary depending on availability and interests, including:

  • Individual case advocacy;
  • Legal research and writing; and
  • Advocacy projects.

If you are a member of the public seeking free or reduced-fee legal assistance, please visit www.MassLegalHelp.org.
