LOOKING FOR A GOAL TO ACCOMPLISH?

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on August 29, 2012

Pro Bono Opportunities

Many of us set goals for ourselves each year, and sometimes over the mid and long-term.  If there is still a volunteer goal you are seeking to accomplish, look no further than pro bono opportunities.   

The Paralegal Division has created a list of Pro Bono programs in Texas. If you would like to volunteer your time for a Pro Bono program, you can now find the list of available programs by following this link to Pro Bono. To search the database, enter the County in which you work or live and a list of Pro Bono opportunities will appear on the screen. Information on other pro bono efforts can be found on the State Bar of Texas Legal Services Division website.

As a member of the Paralegal Division, you can track pro bono hours as well as CLE hours in your individual member record on the PD website. This repository can be a very helpful tool in managing both pro bono and continuing legal education (CLE) hours. The Paralegal Division will be able to use this tool to tabulate and report pro bono efforts of its members to the State Bar of Texas. Participatory hours can be entered by going to http://www.txpd.org, choose the Members Only-tab, choose Directory, and choose either View My Pro Bono Records or View My CLE Records, and sign-in. To enter the hours for either Pro Bono or CLE, click on “Add a Pro Bono (or CLE) Item to Your History.”
