We're excited to announce that MassProBono.org -- a new website that will enhance the delivery of pro bono legal services to people of limited means in Massachusetts -- is live! The website creates a comprehensive pro bono "marketplace" for would-be volunteers across Massachusetts. MassProBono.org allows lawyers to focus their energy on doing pro bono work rather than looking for it.

The site was launched by the Volunteer Lawyers Project, in partnership with Pro Bono Net (a national nonprofit organization), the Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Project (housed at the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute) and the Massachusetts Bar Association.

The centerpiece of the site is a Pro Bono Opportunities Guide, developed in partnership with the MBA, which has built an extensive statewide listing of pro bono opportunities. The Pro Bono Opportunities Guide on MassProBono.org builds on the MBA's pro bono catalogue and incorporates the interactive functions of the Pro Bono Net platform to create a robust new tool to promote pro bono engagement.
