NEW ATTORNEYS

Experience can mean the difference between a call back from a potential employer, and radio silence. It can also pave the way to hanging your own shingle. With Proboknow, you can connect with a mentor, access resources you need, learn new areas of law, and bolster your resume, all while providing pro bono legal services to those who need it most.

ATTORNEYS TRANSITIONING PRACTICE AREAS

Attorneys transitioning to new practice areas can read and understand black letter law on their own, but to get a job or hang their own shingle in a new area, experience really counts. Just as with new attorneys, Proboknow can help by connecting you with a mentor and pro bono clients in your new practice area.

MORE SEASONED ATTORNEYS INTERESTED IN PRO BONO

Quickly and easily connect with pro bono opportunities directly, or double the impact of your pro bono work by (1) mentoring a less seasoned attorney while (2) helping low-income clients in need. Additionally, by taking on the role of mentor, you can cut down on the grunt work involved in doing pro bono and spend more time doing the most enjoyable part, which is mentoring and practicing law. Finally, you get to be a hero to both the client and mentee, and who doesn’t like being a hero?
