In October, the Massachusetts Bar Association is proud to join attorneys around the country in support of Pro Bono Month — a collective effort to promote volunteerism to meet the legal needs of the most vulnerable people in our society. Pro bono service is an important part of being an attorney in Massachusetts, and we encourage you to volunteer for one of our pro bono initiatives.

In honor of Pro Bono Month, this month in eJournal we will be highlighting several volunteer opportunities available at the MBA. This week, we’re spotlighting Dial-A-Lawyer:

Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer and assist people who are in need? 

The Massachusetts Bar Association's monthly Dial-A-Lawyer program, which began in March 1991, may be the best volunteer program for your schedule and interest. The MBA’s Dial-A-Lawyer program now operates remotely and attorney volunteers only need a quiet place, an internet connection (Wi-Fi) and a laptop to participate. The MBA will provide you with a link, username, password, detailed instructions and updated resources before each monthly program. Using the information provided, you will be able to easily log on to the internet from your computer and take calls immediately from the public.

The MBA is seeking attorney volunteers for its monthly Dial-A-Lawyer programs this fall, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 1
  • Wednesday, Dec. 6

If you are interested in participating from your home or office, please contact us at
